 Mission, Vision, Values
 
Motivated by Christ's love, we bring hope to life, especially to those most in need.
 
We envision communities where people are treated
with dignity and respect, their basic needs are met,
and they are empowered to enhance the quality of their own lives.
 
We affirm our faith in God who calls us to serve
We celebrate the uniqueness and dignity of people
We nurture children and strengthen families
We provide quality services to those in need
We serve people of all faiths.
 
 

 

Foster Grandparent Program              

Foster Grandparents are senior volunteers who serve as role models and mentors for at-risk children and youth. Serving in community settings such as schools, childcare facilities, youth centers, Foster Grandparents help children learn to read, provide one on one tutoring, and guide them at a critical time in their lives. There are 48 Foster Grandparents serving in Yakima and Kittitas counties.

Foster Grandparents help children and youth develop the skills and confidence to succeed in school and in life.

Giving back helps the Foster Grandparent too!

Volunteering leads to new discoveries, a chance to share a lifetime of experience, and meet new friends. Studies also show that volunteering helps seniors live longer and promotes a positive outlook on life.
 
Foster Grandparents:
 
       Are age 55 and over
 
      Are able to volunteer at least 20 hours per week (maximum 40 hours per week)
 
      May qualify for a small stipend if living on a limited income
 
     Love children
