Thanks to our newest Partner for the Foster Grandparent program, The maximus foundation!

“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.” 

Positive Maturity's Senior Companion Program provides friendship, respite, light housekeeping and homemaker services to frail elderly adults and adults with disabilities.  Senior Companions volunteer in a variety of settings through Jefferson County and receive a monetary stipend for the volunteer hours (typically 20 hours per week).
