The Foster Grandparent Program

This program offers seniors ages 55 and older, living on a limited income, opportunities to serve as mentors, role models and tutors for children and youth in Delaware County, Hancock County, Henry County and Rush County. Foster Grandparents help children develop skills, confidence and encouragement to succeed in life.

They may serve as few as 5 hours per week or as many as 40 hours per week in community organizations including faith-based groups, Head Start Preschools, Public schools and other non-profit facilities. Foster Grandparents earn a tax- free stipend and receive other specific advantages as compensation for making a difference in a child’s life.
