Friends Association for Children (FRIENDS) is proud to partner with the VCU Broad Street Mile to raise awareness and funds for our organization. We have been serving children and families in Richmond for over 140 years. Participating in the Broad Street Mile and making a donation in support of FRIENDS allows us to continue providing high-quality, affordable, subsidized day care and before and after school care to children from our two centers in Gilpin Court and Church Hill and supports our Music and Performing Arts, Health Education and Family Support Services programs. We look forward to seeing YOU at the VCU Broad Street Mile!!
