Foster Grandparents Needed

Ann Horgan Hampstead Central

Want to make a difference in a child’s life in our community?  

The Friends Foster Grandparent Program places seniors in local schools helping children read, learn, and be mentored by caring adults 55 and up. And we need volunteers!

Highlights of this wonderful program include:

- By volunteering in a local elementary or preschool you’ll mentor and support children academically and emotionally while building meaningful relationships with students and other adults in the community. 

- Income-eligible seniors receive a grant-funded, tax-free stipend that won’t affect your Social Security benefits or any other assistance. 

- Encouraging a child to reach their goals gives you a sense of purpose and gives that child confidence and the comfort of a caring adult.

The Friends Program coordinates the only Foster Grandparent Program in New Hampshire and we have openings in many communities! Maybe your hometown school is one of them!
