Friends of the Children Charity Profile
Friends of the Children – Portland is a non-profit organization that provides Portland’s most at-risk children with intensive and long-term mentors. We take a preventive, early intervention approach that breaks the cycle of poverty and abuse by helping children in need overcome the many obstacles in their lives.
Friends of the Children provides our community’s most vulnerable children with full-time, paid, professionally trained mentors (called Friends) to ensure that each child has a positive, consistent and supportive adult in his or her life. We begin working with children in Kindergarten and continue to support them for 12 1/2 years, through high school graduation.
Friends of the Children Volunteer Information
Volunteers make it possible for us to improve the lives of at-risk children and youth. Help us make a positive difference in the lives of our children, by donating your time and experience.
Friends of the Children-Portland hosts or participates in four major fundraising events annually. You can support an event by joining a committee to assist in the coordinating and planning, or volunteer the day of an event.
We need reliable help with administrative work. Helping for a few hours with various office tasks means we are able to save time and money that can go to our children.
