Welcome to our Family of Friends

At Family of Friends, we believe that thriving kids and families lie at the heart of an empowered, connected community.  We build systems of support through mentoring so that kids feel heard, valued and encouraged to grow.

Show kids they matter by donating or becoming a mentor with our program. Your contribution will go towards recruiting, training, screening and supporting high-quality mentors for youth and families in Gresham and Portland, OR.
