Be the positive change in a child’s life!

Foster Grandparents

UPO’s Foster Grandparent Program trains low-income seniors with caring spirits to provide attention, guidance, and support to DC children in a variety of local settings, including early education centers, elementary schools, hospitals, and youth programs.

Volunteering as a foster grandparent is the perfect opportunity for individuals aged 55 and older to share their experience and wisdom with children who will cherish the lessons to be learned.

Please see their stories on our media page!

To learn more about the value of mentoring for children and seniors, listen to The Steve Harvey Show’s interview with our Project Director, and watch a heartfelt video with Foster Grandma Cassandra Gentry.

For more information, contact Foster Grandparent Program Director Cheryl Christmas at 202-610-5826 or cchristmas@upo.org.
