“It is with great pleasure that I present Positive Maturity, Inc. with this MAXIMUS Foundation grant, which is funded, in part, by MAXIMUS employees,” said John Boyer, MAXIMUS Foundation Chairman. “It is an honor to present this grant to such a deserving organization, and I thank Positive Maturity and the Foster Grandparent Volunteers for its commitment to enriching the lives of those it serves.” 

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service to others."
