About Us

Friends of the Children-Boston (Friends-Boston) creates generational change by engaging children from high risk communities in twelve years of transformative mentoring relationships.

At Friends of the Children-Boston (Friends-Boston), we do not shy away from actively seeking out and serving the highest risk kids facing extreme barriers to success. To achieve our mission, we identify children facing the hardest challenges, and relentlessly dedicate our resources to them for their entire childhood—from kindergarten through high school graduation no matter what. We call the high-risk children we serve “Achievers” to demonstrate our belief in their potential to succeed, just as we call our professional mentors "Friends" because they are forming meaningful relationships with our youth. Friends-Boston’s long-term goal is that Achievers will graduate from high school and succeed in college.
