By being a Foster Grandparent you can change the life of a child.

Do you have what it takes?

Positive Maturity's Foster Grandparent Volunteers provide one-on-one emotional support, mentoring, and/or tutoring to children (0-18) with exceptional needs. Foster Grandparents volunteer in a variety of settings throughout Jefferson County and receive a monetary stipend for the volunteer hours (typically 20 hours per week).

Funding for the Foster Grandparent program is provided by The Corporation for National and Community Service and the United Way of Central Alabama.

"Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is."
