The Foster Grandparent Program
This program provides opportunities for 60 years of age and older to assist children and youth who need personal attention and assistance at Dillon Elementary school.
Foster Grandparents are involved in mentoring and tutoring, they offer emotional support to child victims of abuse and neglect, and they care for premature infants and children with physical disabilities and severe illness. Foster Grandparents serve on average 20 hours per week assisting children in the classrooms.
All Foster Grandparents complete 40 hours of orientation prior to service and are required to participate in monthly in-service training sessions.
Grandma Joyce is in our building everyday and provides support for some of our classrooms, we enjoy having her in our building! Thank you for your time and support!
