Ways to Give

Male Friend and Youth Friends Portland 5

Become an INVESTOR with Friends

Our model was founded on research showing that the single most important factor in overcoming childhood trauma is a long-term, nurturing relationship with a consistent and caring adult. As part of our 12-year journey with our families, each child gets 12-16 hours of 1:1 support each month, leading to 1,700+ hours of mentorship in their lifetime! We invite you to join us in giving youth this life-changing gift.
