School Partners

We serve 425 children and youth in over 100 schools in the five counties throughout the Portland/Vancouver metropolitan area. We begin by selecting children at the kindergarten level at three local elementary schools and directly from the foster care system in partnership with the Department of Human Services. Many of our children move during their time with Friends of the Children, and we remain committed to each child within a 30-mile radius of Portland.
