Thank you!

I Rise: Inspiring Greatness

Thank you!

Our community just invested over $800,000 in our youth!

Keila, one of our fiercely committed parents, came onstage and spoke about how dealing with domestic violence and CPS made her lose trust in the system. That trust was restored when she enrolled her son in Friends of the Children in 2006. "As a parent, it’s nice to have someone to advocate for you. It’s even better to have someone to advocate with you," Keila said.

We are so proud of the relationships we build with parents and caregivers. It was an honor to share the video of mothers who believe in our program and partner with our mentors, as well as the video of our program youth sharing the pride they feel towards their accomplishments, big and small.

We hope you can join us next year on Saturday, October 3, 2020. We are excited to announce the venue soon! We look forward to seeing you all there.
