About Us

Friends of the Children is a national nonprofit that is breaking the cycle of generational poverty by giving children facing the highest risks the ability to create a new story. We do this by providing the most vulnerable children with a long-term, salaried, professional mentor, who we call a “Friend,” from kindergarten through high school graduation, 12 ½ years – no matter what.


Evaluations on youth who complete the Friends of the Children program show that:


• 83% graduate from high school

• 93% avoid the juvenile justice system

• 98% avoid early parenting


We aren’t just changing the stories of children facing the highest risks. We’re changing the collective stories of our community for the long run. Our work is focused on one child at a time, but it affects everyone.
