Members of the Foster Grandparent Program (FPG) are low-income people 55 years of age and over. They serve 15-40 hours per week and receive a non-taxable stipend of $2.65/ hour. Foster Grandparents provide individual attention, love and personal care to children with special and exceptional needs; teen parents; and youth facing homelessness.
There are currently no Foster Grandparent Programs in Washington. If an organization is interested in learning more about hosting an FGP project, please reach out to WA@cns.gov for additional information.
