Welcome to the FGP

The Foster Grandparent Program (FGP) offers a multigenerational approach to community volunteerism by giving older adults the opportunity to volunteer with youth ranging from infancy to 21 years of age. Foster Grandparents are mentors, tutors, and friends to children with exceptional needs or circumstances. We partner with schools and community-based organizations in service planning areas (SPA) 4, 6, 7, and 8, which encompass Inglewood, Carson, Compton, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Hollywood, Mid City, Torrance, and Watts. We invite you to learn more about our dedicated volunteers, community partners, and the Foster Grandparent Program.
