Senior Companions, age 55 or older, help frail seniors remain at home and independent by offering companionship, grocery shopping assistance and transportation to medical appointments. Foster grandparents, also 55 or older, provide special tutoring and one-to-one mentoring to children in schools, Head Start programs and shelters. More than 300 volunteers serve in Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey and Washington counties.
