Only Poor Mentors Need to Apply
A Caddo program wants parish inmates' permission to let senior citizens mentor their children in hopes that the youths don't wind up in jail like their parents.I think we can all get behind something like this. However, one point jumped out at me that I can not make sense of, the criteria for being a foster grandparent includes a limited income:
A foster grandparent must be at least 60 years of age, willing to donate 20 hours a week and have a limited income.What am I missing here? Does the state feel that people who are financially secure represent a bad portion of society or can not give love and guidance to a child? Nothing like limiting your pool of applicants that desire to help needy children.
Your government at work.
