It is with great disappointment that we must announce we are unable to host any Foster Grandparent volunteers at educational facilities at this time. Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, YWCA Tri-County Area felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. On Thursday, March 12, 2020 the Montgomery County Office of Health announced that all schools in Montgomery County will close for a minimum of two weeks and one day. For questions, please contact Ashley Faison, Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-323-1888 ext. 210
