This program offers seniors age 60 and older opportunities to serve as mentors, tutors, and loving caregivers for children.

In addition, the program gives seniors who may not oth- erwise have "a reason to get up in the morning" (a common remark from our volunteers) the opportunity to continue to be active in their community. Currently, we have over 85 Foster Grandparents placed in 35 differ- ent sites in Lyon, O'Brien, Osceola, Plymouth, Sioux and Dickinson County. These Foster Grandparents volunteer in their area schools, Head Start and day care centers.
