"Doing whatever it takes to help children and young people in the child welfare system thrive" has been the mission of Friends of Children since 1990.
Your donation ensures that we can train and support the volunteers who are central to advocating for our CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates).
Your donation ensures that we advocate for child welfare reforms statewide.
Your donation ensures there will be more young adults like Jorge who have been inspired by our FOCUS program and now want to "pay it forward" by making a donation to help another child in foster care have a better life.
Change for foster children is a slow and intricate process, and we are in it for the long haul. Together, with your support, change for these children is possible.
"I learned what every dreaming child needs to know-no horizon is so far that you cannot see above it or beyond it." Beryl Markham
