Do you have more life in your years?
If you're 55 or older, meet specific income guidelines and agree to a thorough criminal history background check, you qualify to be a Foster Grandparent!
Foster Grandparents must commit to 15 to 20 hours per week, 4 hours of training once per month, and a have a desire to make a difference in the life of children who need them.
Ask a Foster Grandparent why they volunteer and you'll often hear: ' My spouse passed away, and I realized I needed to get out of the house and do something', or 'My grandkids live so far away and I really miss having that energy in my life,' or 'I realized that just because I'm a senior, it doesn't mean that I still can't make a difference.' If this sounds similar to your story, give us a call!
Monetary and In Kind support is welcomed and appreciated. All donations are tax deductable. Please indicate your donation is for Foster Grandparents of the Wyoming Rockies.
Foster Grandparent volunteers receive a modest stipend intended to offset the cost of volunteering. Other benefits include mileage reimbursement, paid time off, supplemental volunteer insurance. Additionally, Foster Grandparents reap the benefits of: being a member of a community dedicated to making a difference in the lives of children, fellowship in gathering with other Foster Grandparents, and OF COURSE- being loved by the children they serve.
