Our model is unique.
Our commitment to our youth and families during the COVID-19 outbreak:
Become a part of impacting children's lives in our community by becoming a volunteer!
Hear from our Board Chair and Executive Director, learn more about our Program, and see the impact we are having in Central Oregon!
Our unique model allows our Friends/Mentors and children to go on grand adventures together. Read their stories to learn more about Friends of the Children!
Are you 70 ½ or older? You are eligible to make a direct transfer to Friends Central Oregon from your IRA without paying any taxes!
Generational poverty can be broken. We've been doing it for over 20 years.
We select children facing the highest risks. We help them change their stories.
We commit to each child for the long-term. 12.5 years. No matter what.
Each child is paired with a salaried, professional mentor called a Friend.
