Friends of the Children - SF Bay Area
We are the San Francisco chapter of Friends of the Children, a national mentoring organization that has been helping our most vulnerable children to break the generational cycle of poverty for nearly 25 years.
We identify and enroll only the most vulnerable kindergarteners, then stay with them until high school graduation. We employ full-time, salaried mentors -- not volunteers -- to provide each child with four hours of committed adult relationship each week, for 12-1/2 years, no matter what! We are an intensely systematic and evidence-based program, and that evidence demonstrates that our program works. See friendsofthechildren.org.
