Friends of the Children is a nonprofit that is impacting generational change by giving children facing the most obstacles 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,”

Every child, no matter who they are or where they live, has dreams of doing big things. They have unique talents, and they face obstacles—sometimes a lot more obstacles. Any child in any situation can succeed, even those facing the most obstacles. Our youth go on to become leaders in their communities and successful in their careers. This has ripple effects to their siblings, peers and neighbors, but also to their children, breaking the cycle of generational poverty.

Friends of the Children is growing rapidly as communities across the country are experiencing the power of how “One” changes a child’s story: One Friend. One Child. 12 ½ years. No matter what. #ThePowerOfOne
