Description:

a volunteer program that recruits eligible low-income seniors statewide to assist children with special and exceptional needs in child-care and school settings. To be a foster grandparent, an individual must be at least 55 years of age, commit to volunteering a minimum of 15 hours per week, and meet income and other program requirements. Foster Grandparent volunteers in return receive a nontaxable stipend, meal allowance, travel reimbursement, and paid vacation and sick leave. To receive the services of a foster grandparent, a child must be 21 years old or younger (persons with developmental disabilities who meet specific criteria may continue to receive services beyond their 21st birthday), have special or exceptional needs, and meet other program requirements. To become a foster grandparent, apply for services, or for more information about this program, call the Foster Grandparent Program office on Oahu at (808) 832-5169.
