I want to take a moment to sincerely thank you for your support. Whether you have been a longtime supporter of Friends of the Children or are new to our network, we couldn’t have experienced so much growth without you.
It is with deep gratitude that I share with you our Investor Report. Over the past two years, we have embraced one particular Core Asset that we empower our youth to develop: a Growth Mindset. This has driven our work as we continue innovating and expanding across the country.
Friends of the Children was founded 25 years ago with just three Friends and 24 children. Today, we are a national organization with 15 locations across the U.S. and in the U.K.
We have just reached our goal of raising $25 million for our national expansion campaign, which has been fueled by public and private investments. We are now focused on doubling enrollment in the next four years, with the goal of expanding to 25 cities by 2025.
Warm regards, Terri Sorensen Chief Executive Officer Friends of the Children
