Travel assistance given to Foster Grandparents program

November 23, 2012
The OBSERVER

The Foster Grandparent serving in Chautauqua County were supported by travel assistance funds awarded by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation (CRCF). Many Foster Grandparents must rely on public transportation to travel to and from their assigned schools, Project Head Starts, or pre-elementary daycare sites, and the CRCF assisted these dedicated individuals. Foster Grandparents are placed to work one-on-one with identified students in need of extra help as directed by their teacher, or site supervisors. Improvements made by the students matched with the Foster Grandparents are substantial as indicated on each student's progress as reported in their individual assignment plans, which demonstrates the power of the presence of an adult within a child's learning environment.
