Our model is unique.
Meet our professional mentors, hear from those who grew up in our model, and help us continue to make a difference.
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!
How do you break the cycle of generational poverty?
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.
