The MOVRC Foster Grandparent Program promotes positive volunteer opportunities to income eligible individuals that are 55 and older by providing an environment to mentor to children that are identified with special/exceptional needs or circumstances that limit their academic, social, or emotional development.  The MOVRC sponsors the Foster Grandparent Program in Braxton, Calhoun, Clay, Gilmer, Jackson, Lewis, Marshall, Nicholas, Pleasants, Ritchie, Roane, Tucker, Tyler, Upshur, Webster, Wetzel, Wirt, and Wood counties.

The Foster Grandparent Program enables individuals 55+ to serve 15-40 hours per week helping children in their communities develop the academic and life skills that are critical to their development and future success.  The program offers a tax-free hourly stipend of $2.65 to help cover costs for income eligible volunteers.  Foster Grandparents receive transportation reimbursement, an annual physical exam, supplemental accident and liability insurance while serving, special training, recognition, and opportunities to socialize.
