Friends of the Children Phoenix

The mission of Friends of the Children Phoenix is to impact generational change by empowering youth who are facing the greatest obstacles through relationships with professional mentors – 12+ years, no matter what. To achieve our mission, we identify kindergartners experiencing poverty, trauma, and at highest risk of involvement in the child welfare system. Once enrolled, each child is supported year-round by a highly-trained, professional—not volunteer—mentor (called a “Friend) who helps them create and reach short- and long-term academic and prosocial development goals, from kindergarten through high school graduation–12+ years, no matter what!
