Seniors at Work

Senior volunteers age 55+ who meet certain income eligibility requirements are matched with at-risk children to offer 20 to 40 hours of love, wisdom, and warmth per week.

Benefits of Volunteering

Foster Grandparents receive a tax-free stipend of $2.65 per hour and excess liability insurance. Special training and recognition events are held annually.
