The Foster Grandparent Program is a GREAT way to share your giftedness!
Kalamazoo MI – The Foster Grandparent Program (FGP) offers low-income men and women aged 60 and older the opportunity to provide companionship and guidance to children with special and exceptional needs. Volunteers serve 20 hours per week and in return receive a modest tax-free stipend to cover the cost of volunteering, accident and liability insurance, assistance with transportation, an annual physical examination, training, and a meal on service days. Potential volunteers must have income at or below the established guidelines to be eligible for the FGP. Contact the Michigan Office of Services to the Aging at (517) 373-8230 for additional information.
