Friends of Children welcomes new staff!
Sarah Tanner, Interim Executive Director
Friends of Children is pleased to welcome Sarah Tanner as our interim Executive Director supporting our team while the search committee continues to look for a permanent Executive Director.
We speak the truth on behalf of children, no matter how difficult it is to hear.
We are champions of their best interests. We advocate for the rights and dignity of children in and aging-out of foster care. We recognize the whole child, and commit to changing the course of their lives. Their future and our community’s legacy depend on it.
Looking for support?
Our programs can help you or a child you know that is currently in foster care or aging out with basic needs like food and health care, or with educational and personal growth opportunities.
It takes a village!
We know this important work cannot be done without contributions from our entire community.
Just a simple donation of school supplies or clothing can go a long way to improving a young person's day.
Are you a compassionate listener? Or someone with valuable skills to pass along to young people? Children need reliable advocates and mentors to help them navigate challenges and develop the confidence to become independent.
Maybe you have experience in marketing, social media, photography, videography, or events coordination? So much goes on behind the scenes, and we may have a great fit for you!
Perhaps a financial gift is the best way for you to make an impact? We have multiple options to help you support our work.
