Foster Grandparent Program

If you’re 55 or older and want to share your experience and compassion, you have what it takes to be a foster grandparent. Foster grandparents work up to 40 hours a week serving as a role model, mentor, and friend to a child. You’ll help children learn to read, provide one-on-one tutoring, and guide children at a critical time in their lives.

Foster grandparents receive a tax-free hourly stipend, training, and supplemental accident and liability insurance while on duty.

Volunteer Ombudsman

The EAAAA Volunteer Ombudsman Program seeks individuals to volunteer their time to visit patients in nursing homes. Many nursing home residents don’t have visitors and need social interaction. The volunteer ombudsman serves as the eyes and ears of the ombudsman.

As a volunteer ombudsman, you will:
  • Receive training
  • Have regular visitation in one or more nursing homes
  • Help inform residents and family members of the Ombudsman Program
  • Maintain strict confidentiality
  • Discuss the needs of the residents with the ombudsman
  • Receive support from EAAAA
