Foster Grandparent Program

About the Foster Grandparent Program


Foster Grandparent volunteers are mentors, tutors, and role models serving in various community settings for youth with exceptional needs. In addition to giving participants the opportunity to stay active and healthy, the program offers volunteers a non-taxable stipend, mileage reimbursement, meal assistance, and supplemental accident and liability insurance coverage.

The Oakland County program currently has 45 volunteers, and more are needed!

Participants must be age 55 or older, able to serve 20 hours a week, follow program guidelines, and meet limited income guidelines.

For more information call Carol Wall at 248-537-3300, ext. 3919 or email wallc@ccsem.org.

The Foster Grandparent Program is funded by CNCS, the Michigan Aging and Adult Services Agency, and financial support from the community.

Grandma Reads a Story!

“Grandma Reads a Story” program in partnership with the Pontiac Public Library, where our Catholic Charities of Southeast Michigan Foster Grandparent AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers will be reading an exciting story every Wednesday at 3:30 pm from our Auburn Hills computer lab.
