Generations columnist for The Herald-Palladium

In the last couple weeks, I have had the pleasure of talking with many of our Foster Grandparent volunteers.

Our Foster Grandparent program is about 80 volunteers strong. These volunteers would typically spend 20-30 hours a week mentoring students in schools throughout Berrien, Cass and Van Buren counties.

Pat Arter is senior volunteer program director of Region IV Area Agency on Aging in Southwest Michigan. Questions on age or independence services?
