About Us

Friends of the Children - SW Washington is a chapter of Friends of the Children, a national nonprofit that pairs children who face multiple systemic obstacles with a salaried, professional mentor called a Friend for 12+ years. The organization specializes in serving youth who have been impacted by extreme poverty, foster care, parental incarceration, trauma, housing instability, isolation and other obstacles that create instability. Each child selected is paired with a Friend whose full-time job is to spend four hours a week with each child at school, at home and in the community. Friends will work with youth for 12+ years, building trusting relationships through a trauma-informed lens that is culturally-responsive and provides critical social, emotional and academic support.
