The Foster Grandparent Program serves Johnson, Jones, and Linn Counties and provides intergenerational opportunities for mature adults to mentor children in schools, community centers and day cares. The heart of the program is the one-on-one daily attention the Foster Grandparents provide the children. By touching the lives of the children they serve, Foster Grandparents also profoundly enrich their own lives.

Foster Grandparent Testimonial

“This program has made a huge impact on my life. It gives my life meaning and gives me a reason to get out of bed in the morning. I look forward to going to the site and hearing, ‘I love you Grandma!’ It makes it all worthwhile!” ~ Grandma Effie
