Friends of the Children is celebrating 30 years of generational change

As Friends of the Children celebrates 30 years of generational change, we are thrilled to share with you incredible stories, accomplishments, and growth from over the past year. Inside the report, you’ll read the inspiring journeys of the youth and families impacted by Friends of the Children’s program and the partners and supporters who have made it all possible. Thanks to your unwavering support and dedication, we’ve been able to create lasting change in the lives of the youth and families we serve.

The 2022-2023 Impact Report shares stories about how our 12+ years, no matter what commitment confronts societal challenges that include youth mental health, intergenerational poverty, foster care, and more. You’ll read stories from Austin, Boston, Chicago, the Oglala Lakota Nation, and Portland as we celebrate the youth and families we serve; staff and Friends in our national network; and partners including World Champion gymnast and youth advocate Simone Biles, philanthropists Gary and Christine Rood, Portland program alumni Jimmy, and Oglala Lakota cultural advisor Rick Hmuya Mani Two Dogs.
