Welcome to our Family of Friends

We believe that thriving kids and families lie at the heart of a healthy, connected community.   Our volunteers provide mentoring through play to help low-income kids build social and emotional skills outside of school that benefit them inside of school, and in all facets of life.

Join the movement to elevate kids and make our community stronger.  Refer someone to be a mentor to a Gresham youth today or donate to support our mission.


This is why Mentoring Matters…
