A Message from GLITC Foster Grandparents Program
By Cassie Molkentin
Elder Volunteer Recruiter
Great Lake Inter Tribal Council
Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion Programs are working diligently to find the “New Way” to be able to come back to work within each of our Tribal Communities. Many of you have recently been a recipient of our Care Packaged delivered through your Tribal Elder programs in some fashion.
During this time of Pandemic dealing with Covid-19, we have continued to reach out to each of our existing volunteers, staying connected and checking in to ensure everyone is staying safe and healthy. We encourage each one of our Elder Volunteers to follow their respective Tribal Community’s recommendations for safety.
Moving forward, we will be doing an extensive Recruitment push to encourage our Elders to continue sharing their knowledge, strength and resilience with our youth through the Foster Grandparent Program. We are searching for the best way for our Senior Companion Volunteers to be able to continue being of service to their fellow Seniors as companions in the new way each Tribal Nation establishes.
Please, do not hesitate to contact us for any information regarding joining the Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion Programs through GLITC. Cassie: 715-661-4107 or firstname.lastname@example.org
