Foster Grandparents receive a small stipend for working up to 20 hours a week to assist young children attending daycare centers, Head Start programs, kindergarten, or first grade in public or church schools. The attention, care and support offered by Foster Grandparents, in collaboration with teachers, boost family engagement in school and encourages the development of social, emotional, and academic development.

Foster Grandparents: Helping The Children Who Need It The Most

Foster Grandparents are senior volunteers who share their knowledge, warmth, and compassion with children. Volunteers work as aides in schools, day care centers, Head Start programs, and family support centers. Our foster grandparents work closely with children who have special needs, from shyness to physical disabilities. They help children develop academic and life skills they need for future success. Foster Grandparents commit 20-40 hours weekly and receive a monthly stipend (which does not affect other entitlements.) To learn more about how to become a Foster Grandparent, call 410-366-1980 x 274.

Our Foster Grandparents program was recentely featured in ABC2’s “Making a Difference” segment.
