Foster Grandparent Program

Foster Grandparent ProgramFoster Grandparent volunteers work with children who are at-risk or have special needs. Volunteers are placed in schools, hospitals, correctional institutions, Head Start, and day care centers. The heart of the program is the one-to-one daily attention that Foster Grandparents provide and the sense of hope they foster in the hearts of children.

Call (505) 764-6412 for more information or to volunteer.
