    Empowering children and strengthening families for 12+ years, no matter what!

    Friends of the Children - Los Angeles supports children and families impacted by the child welfare system, co-creating generational change by empowering youth who are facing the greatest obstacles through relationships with professional mentors—from kindergarten through high school completion. Our two-generation approach (2Gen) engages families as equals, working intentionally and simultaneously in the lives of children and their caregivers to combat the effects of systemic barriers like poverty and trauma, and build the life of their dreams.
