Foster Grandparent Program!
This weekend we had a very special guest on our Urban Excursion and senior day activity! Betty joined us through a unique program called Foster Grandparents. Foster Grandparents are role models, mentors, and friends to children with exceptional needs. The program provides a way for volunteers age 55 and over to stay active by serving children and youth in their communities.
Volunteers serve at thousands of local organizations that
- Help children learn to read and provide one-on-one tutoring
- Mentor troubled teenagers and young mothers
- Care for premature infants or children with disabilities
- Help children who have been abused or neglected
We enjoyed our OMSI outing and Starry Nights Live in the planetarium. It was a beautiful sunny January day in our lovely town and our guests really enjoyed being able to get out and about!
