Congratulations to our Parent Leadership Training Institute Graduates! These parents have completed 22 weeks of classes that equip parents with strategies to improve the lifelong health, safety, learning of children, and how to become practiced change agents for the next generation.

We are happy to have resources that can help our families learn outside of classrooms and through systematic barriers, and can be used for positive change in our community.

Porter-Leath celebrates 50 years of Foster Grandparent Volunteer Program

Seniors Program celebrated 50 years of Foster Grandparent volunteers in Memphis this week! The Shelby County program began in 1972 at Arlington Developmental Center with 20 foster grandparent volunteers and has been housed at Porter-Leath for over 35 years.

Today, 106 seniors spend an average of 25 hours each week providing additional support to children in the areas of literacy and reading at over 30 locations in Shelby and Fayette counties. The foster grandparents, who live on limited resources, receive a tax-free stipend to allow them to volunteer at no cost to themselves.
