Corporation for National & Community Service

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) is the Federal Agency that administers the Foster Grandparent Program, the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, and the Senior Companion Program.  These three programs together form Senior Corp.  CNCS also administers AmeriCorps and Learn and Serve America.  These programs engage Americans of all ages and backgrounds in services that strengthen communities.  The Foster Grandparent Program began in 1965 and came to Ottumwa in 2000.  Currently, the enrollment is 40 volunteers, who give over 33,000 hours of service annually.
