(Corporation for National and Community Service – Senior Corps)

The Foster Grandparent Program is a part of Senior Corps along with RSVP and Senior Companions. Senior Corps is administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service, the federal agency that supports service and volunteering programs to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement. YW3CA is partnered with these organizations to run the Foster Grandparent Program in Montgomery County, Pa.

My favorite part of being a Foster Grandparent is knowing that I have made a positive difference in a little one's life. I work hard to help them promote their self-confidence and self worth.
