Mission Statement

Friends of Karen provides emotional, financial and advocacy support for children with a

life-threatening illness and their families, in order to help keep them strong, functioning and able

to cope.

Friends of Karen is a registered 501(c)(3) charity and the only organization in the New

York metropolitan area to provide a comprehensive range of services -- at no cost -- to families

caring for a child with a life-threatening illness.

Description

The purpose of the Friends of Karen Beth's Buddies Support Program is to provide help

with homework and reading, including school work, projects or class assignments for children in

Kindergarten through High School. Volunteers should enjoy working with children and be

willing to commit to one hour per week for a three month period.

Volunteers will meet with the Friends of Karen Volunteer Coordinator and a social

worker for orientation. The volunteer must also sign an authorization form for a background

check. The volunteer will then participate in an initial meeting with the family's Friends of

Karen social worker and the child's parents/guardian to explain Beth's Buddies and the

parameters of the program.
