Foster Grandparents


The National Foster Grandparent Program (FGP) of CNCS has been around since 1965 and provides limited income seniors the opportunity to give back to the community by serving children by assisting them to increase school readiness and academic engagement. FGP volunteers engage in and provide a positive impact in their communities.

Training, supervision, recognition, and a non-taxable monthly stipend are just some of the benefits of becoming a Foster Grandparent. Our Foster Grandparents volunteer in Muskegon, Lake and Newaygo Counties.
