Average Jane. Regular Jane. Plain Jane.

None of these idioms describe OUR Jane. Jane Lyons. Executive Director of Friends of Children, Inc.

Whether testifying before the legislature, publishing reports shining light on the failures of the child welfare system, or personally calling 25 dentists to find an appointment for a child in need of care – Jane Lyons is anything but average.

For over 40 years Jane Lyons has worked tirelessly to defend and protect youth in the foster care or juvenile justice system here in Massachusetts. Now it's time to celebrate her.

Our goal is to both celebrate Jane's work and to provide a legacy in her honor. We hope you will join us in reaching our goal of $50,000 for this fundraising tribute.

A big thank you to our sponsors!
