Riley, Age 19: "I'm on my own -- no family, no support system, no secure place to live. I have a high school diploma and a part-time job that pays just over minimum wage. I was in 7 placements and in and out of DCF for over 11 years. I struggle with depression and anxiety. I need your support. I need your help."

Riley walked into Friends of Children asking for our help. We want to provide what she needs: consistent guidance from trusted adults who are available at any time; financial support to assist with necessary expenses; the chance to make real her dreams of a safe and secure future; opportunities to contribute to a community that cares about her and respects her contributions; and the simple pleasure of relaxing with people who understand and support her. Helping young people like Riley requires money, people, programs, connections and resources.

We do whatever we can to get them whatever they need. We need your help to continue.

Riley: "With Friends of Children by my side, I can move forward, one step at a time."
