Foster Grandparents Program
The Foster Grandparent Program is the only one of its kind in Washington County allowing for older adults to be involved while receiving a tax-free stipend, travel reimbursement, supplemental insurance and other benefits. This program provides opportunities for older adults to be active in their communities by building positive relationships with the children and youth. They have 102 volunteers and 74 stations throughout Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Fayette, Greene and Washington Counties that assist in the local school districts. Their value of service throughout the year is estimated at 1.2 million dollars and serves 1,090 children per month.
