Friends of the Family works to even the playing field for disadvantaged children and families so that they can achieve their highest potential. Working in some of the most challenged neighborhoods in Los Angeles, FOF provides stellar programs that lift children and families out of poverty, prevent child abuse and neglect, and build supportive neighborhoods.
In partnership with the families we serve, the work of Friends of the Family:
- improves child and family well being
- creates pathways to self-sufficiency
- creates access to quality education & healthcare
- builds parents' capacity to support their children's school success
- fosters connected communities
We sincerely hope your family has many blessings as we come to the close of the year, and we thank you for caring about families who do not. We thank you on behalf of the frightened young mom whose husband is abusive… the hard-working parents who must choose between paying for groceries or medicine for a sick child… the lonely child who has to walk by gang bangers on his way to school every day… the family displaced by illness or job loss, alone and afraid.
For more than 40 years, Friends of the Family has been a harbor of hope and the place families turn to for a way to make things better for their children. Please join us to support this important work!
