Mission Statement

At Family of Friends we leverage the power of mentoring relationships in East County to support positive self-identity and youth leadership, so young people have a platform to build the futures they want for themselves and their communities.

Description

For 16 years Family of Friends has been helping low-income families by matching kids with caring, adult volunteer mentors and mentor families. We build systems of support so kids and families build strong connections and the entire community benefits!

With a focus on prevention, our program pairs kids with volunteer adults, couples and entire families as mentors. Our awesome kids live in East Multnomah County, range in age from 6-12 and typically come from low-income backgrounds.

Through weekly outings outside of school, mentors help kids build social and emotional skills linked to academic success, and provide access to safe, fun activities in the community.

We are seeking stable, caring adults, couples and families who can give a youth 1-3 hours per week of healthy, quality time for at least one year. Matches meet outside of school or on weekends. Scheduling is flexible and participants are screened, trained and supported by professional staff every step of the way.
