Foster Grandparents Program
The Foster Grandparents Program at Homage Senior Services is a mentoring program designed to pair seniors with children with special and/or exceptional needs for one-on-one support at community locations (e.g., Schools, Daycares, Child Care Centers, Social Centers, Clubs or hospitals).
Individuals who meet income eligibility can receive a non-taxable hourly stipend (the stipend does not affect any benefits you may receive), mileage reimbursement, paid holidays, and ongoing training and recognition. Volunteers (55 and over) must commit to a minimum of 15 hours per week. Homage provides administrative support, volunteer recognition, and ongoing training.
Foster Grandparent Volunteers must be at least 55 years old, be available to volunteer at least 15 hours per week, and meet the low income eligibility requirement in order to receive the stipend. Foster Grandparent applicants go through an application process and an orientation/training process prior to being matched with children.
