Foster Grandparent Program

The Wyoming Foster Grandparent Program services the critical needs of children and youth.  They volunteer in schools, hospitals, drug treatment centers, correctional institutions, and Head Start and day care centers. The volunteers help children who have been neglected, mentor troubled teenagers and young mothers, and care for premature infants and children with physical disabilities. 

There are 3 main projects covering the entire state. They are sponsored by Wyoming Senior Citizens, Inc., Southeast Wyoming Mental Health Center, Inc., and Cathedral Home for Children, Inc.
