Welcome to our Family of Friends

We believe that thriving kids and families lie at the heart of healthy, connected communities.  Kids have incredible perspective and wisdom to share.  Unfortunately, kids and families with low-incomes often have less access to opportunities that build the skills and networks they need to lead their fullest lives.

Family of Friends supports mentoring relationships that help kids build social and emotional skills and relationships through play.  Our ultimate goal is to decrease the gap in outcomes for low-income kids and families.

Join the movement to elevate kids and make our community stronger.  Sign up for an Info Session to learn more about mentoring a Gresham youth today or donate to support our mission.



Volunteer Info Session

Join us for our January Info session!  With more than 60 kids waiting for mentors in the Gresham area, a little bit of your time and talents can make a huge difference for a kid and their family.  Sign up HERE.

Thank you to everyone who came and supported our Open House Happy Hour event in October!  With over 100 people in attendance, we ate, we drank and we raised awareness for youth-mentoring in Gresham and beyond.  Check out the photos from the event HERE.
