April 17, 2024 • Uncategorized

Texans aged 55 and older with limited income and a heart for serving children are invited to participate in the Foster Grandparent Program to mentor, tutor, encourage and uplift children and youth in need. Foster Grandparents serve at elementary schools, child care centers, clubs, libraries or summer camps, helping students develop stronger academic and social skills. Volunteers serve between 15 to 40 hours a week and receive a federal stipend and mileage reimbursement for their time and travel. The Foster Grandparents’ commitment to service strengthens neighborhoods, schools and families and makes an impact on the children and youth that can span generations.
