A Family For Every Child
This is a great opportunity to support youth in an informal, non-traditional mentor environment. As a Volunteer in our new site specific program, you will go to a location (library or school) one or two days a week for 2-3 hours and be available to the students as they come to the Family Resource Center.
Students utilize this room as a place to seek homework assistance, relax, enjoy a meal, play a game of cards,do their laundry, etc. Organic connections will be made and relationships will start to flourish. Once a Volunteer & youth have been meeting for awhile, some might want to join our "traditional " Mentor Program.

About A Family For Every Child
1675 W. 11th Ave., Eugene, OR 97402, US
A Family for Every Child is dedicated to finding loving, permanent families for every waiting foster child." Our intention is to develop programs that assist special-needs/challenging-to-place foster children in finding their own Forever Families.
A Family For Every Child, a nonprofit organization, was started by Christy Obie-Barrett and dozens of dedicated and passionate volunteers. In 2006, AFFEC was formed and developed into an organization focused on finding permanent and loving adoptive homes for Oregon's waiting children. We started with our first project called The Heart Gallery in November, 2006, and now we have blossomed into ten incredibly successful programs. None of this could have occurred without the wonderful support from thousands of volunteers, sponsors, in-kind donors, photographers, and many more!
