Foster Grandparents devote their volunteer service to one population: children with special or exceptional needs. Across the country, Foster Grandparents are offering emotional support to child victims of abuse and neglect, tutoring children who lag behind in reading, mentoring troubled teenagers and young mothers, and caring for premature infants and children with physical disabilities and severe illnesses. If you meet certain income guidelines and are 60 or older, you may be eligible for this program. You will receive a modest tax free stipend to offset the cost of volunteering, and are reimbursed for transportation, some meals, an annual physical and accident and liability insurance.
