Family Friend reduces the barriers for family to care for family by providing resources and community support to children and families impacted by abuse or neglect.
Family Friend is a (501)c3 with the mission of strengthening families impacted by abuse, neglect and poverty. We do this by creating a strong network of volunteer support for Portland’s children and families in the Child Welfare system. Our programs are based on a philosophy that emphasizes solid familial connections, strong local networks, and the knowledge that each child needs a stable living environment. We are asking the community to join us in creating a network of support for families in the Child Welfare system, so we can together propel families successfully to safety and stability.
