Simone shares her journey with foster care, mental health, and working with Friends of the Children

USA Today featured an opinion article by Simone Biles sharing her journey with foster care, mental health, and working with Friends of the Children. Simone shared how one person can change a child’s life and the importance of youth to have a caring, consistent adult to support and guide them. We are honored and thrilled that Simone celebrated her work with Friends of the Children and her hopes for our continued growth to impact more youth and families.

It is my hope that everyone who needs a “Friend” can have a  Friend so they, too, can be fearless, courageous, achieve their big dreams and have fun while doing it.” - Simone Biles
