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.
