Foster Grandparent Program

From Hawaii Family Forum, August 21, 2016

This is a great opportunity for the faith-based community!  We are providing the information below as an FYI only.

The DHS Social Services Division (SSD) provides protection from abuse and neglect for children and dependent adults. The Adult Protective and Community Services Branch (APCSB) provides protective services for vulnerable adults and home and community-based services to prevent premature institutionalization of clients. For more information about Adult Community Services click here.

Foster Grandparent Program is a volunteer program that recruits eligible low-income seniors statewide to assist children with special and exceptional needs in child-care and school settings. To be a foster grandparent, an individual must be at least 55 years of age, commit to volunteering a

minimum of 15 hours per week, and meet income and other program requirements. Foster Grandparent volunteers in return receive a nontaxable stipend, meal allowance, travel reimbursement, and paid vacation and sick leave. To receive the services of a foster grandparent, a child must be 21 years old or younger (persons with developmental disabilities who meet specific criteria may continue to receive services beyond their 21st birthday), have special or exceptional needs, and meet other program requirements. To become a foster grandparent, apply for services, or for more information about this program, call the Foster Grandparent Program office on Oahu at (808) 832-5169.
