Peninsula Foster Grandparent Program
The Peninsula Foster Grandparent Program offers individuals age 55 and older an opportunity to serve as mentors, tutors, and loving caregivers for children with exceptional needs. Our hope is that the personal attention each child receives from our volunteers assists with the self-confidence and self-value needed in order for the child to eventually become a productive citizen of society.
