Through the power of relationships, Friends of the Children - Portland addresses critical societal challenges and drives greater equity, justice, and connection for the youth in our community who need us the most. Friends currently provides over 400 youth with salaried, professional mentors for their entire childhood, from kindergarten through high school graduation.

The biggest way our professional mentors prepare youth for school is by spending time with them month after month, year after year. You may also support this critical part of our mission with cash donations.
