CCSWW will end its’ sponsorship of the Foster Grandparent Program June 30, 2016. This decision is made with considerable regret. Since 2002 when the agency began its sponsorship of the program, Foster Grandparent volunteers have provided mentoring and tutoring for children from preschool ages to 18 years at schools and other sites throughout Western Washington. During this time, Foster Grandparent volunteers provided 2,652,251 hours of support and mentorship for over 58,178 children at these sites. We have appreciated the opportunity to work with these dedicated and selfless volunteers who have served as positive role models and influenced the lives of so many youth in our communities.

The program will be temporarily suspended until a new sponsor is identified by the WA State Office for the Corporation for National and Community Service. Work is underway to initiate a Request for Proposals process to identify a new sponsor later this year. Inquiries regarding this process and the timeline can be made through the WA State office: Alyssa Bostian, WA State Program Officer at 206-607-2601.
