Friends of the Children - Austin

Joined in November 2017

About Us

Friends of the Children Austin is part of 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, 12.5 years – no matter what.

Our evidence-based model works:

  • 83% of our youth graduate from high school
  • 93% of our youth avoid the juvenile justice system
  • 98% of our youth 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.

Our mission

Friends of the Children’s mission is to help our nation’s most vulnerable children develop the relationships, goals and skills necessary.
