Southeast Texas Foster Grandparents – Making a Difference

Volunteer Opportunities for East Texas Seniors

The Foster Grandparent Program

Do Southeast Texas Foster Grandparents make a difference?

Mary  had a brain tumor and no one at school could meet her needs.  Due to her foster grandmother’s faithful one-on-one efforts with Mary, she is making daily progress! Her foster grandmother is helping Mary with reading and writing.

Johnny, who was failing in school before he met his SETX foster grandmother,  now is on the A honor roll!

Please help the Southeast Texas Foster Grandparent Program to reach children from Hardin, Jefferson and Orange Counties.

The South East Texas  Foster Grandparents Program’s  mission is to recruit and train income limited people 60+ years old to provide twenty hours per week of individual attention to children at risk in Hardin, Jefferson and Orange Counties.
