The mission of NAFGPD is to provide a national focus for issues which directly impact Foster Grandparent Program directors to effectively manage projects and meet the changing need of the community.

 

The National Association of Foster Grandparent Program Directors, Inc.(NAFGPD), was created in 1971.  Since that time, NAFGPD has served as the principal advocate for the Foster Grandparent Program in general, for the furtherance of the goals of the Foster Grandparent Program (FGP), and for the well-being of it's volunteers.  The Association is incorporated in the State of Michigan and has a 509(a) status under IRS Code 501(c)3.

 Operating with one message and one purpose, we believe:

    • The purpose of our program is to enable limited income seniors to serve children with identified needs.
    • To be successful programs require adequate funding that flows directly from the federal government to the sponsoring agency.
    • Program staff needs training and technical assistance that promotes professional growth and development through partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service.
    • Measures of success for program accountability should be multi-faceted.
