Quotes about the Program

“The impact our Foster Grandparent has with children is huge. Time doesn’t allow a classroom teacher to meet with every child, every day one-on-one. Our Foster Grandparent can have that contact daily. The Foster Grandparent’s greatest strength is their love and compassion, and how they work with and help the students succeed.”
