The Foster Grandparent Program of Wyandotte County is sponsored by Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas and funded through the Corporation of National and Community Service.  Foster Grandparents mentor at-risk and special needs children in public schools, day cares and Head Starts.

Adults who are older than 55 years of age, reside in Wyandotte County, fall within the income guidelines and can pass a physical and background checks are eligible to join this exciting opportunity!  Transportation can be provided if necessary. Older adults must be able to complete 20 hours of pre-service training, work at least 15 hours a week and attend monthly in-service training meetings. As a Foster Grandparent you are paid a non-taxable stipend payment of $2.65 hour, mileage reimbursement if you drive, special gifts and events and chance to attend the annual Foster Grandparent Conference.

Join us as we continue to shape children’s lives in Wyandotte County.  This is your chance to give back to your community!
