Friends of the Children - Austin
Friends of the Children - Austin is the newest chapter of a growing national mentoring organization that helps our nation's highest-risk children develop the relationships, goals, and skills necessary to break the cycles of poverty, abuse, and violence, and become contributing members of society. Our model is proven to break the cycle of generational poverty by providing professional mentors to thousands of youth across the country. We employ trained, full-time professional mentors. We call them “Friends”; to provide a stable, caring and sustainable relationship in each child’s life for 12 ½ years, no matter what.
