Established in 1979, United Friends of the Children’s housing and education programs focus on commitment and consistency. By forging lasting, trusting relationships with youth, we address their single most critical emotional need.
Our Pathways program surrounds foster youth age 18-24 with positive role models, creating enduring relationships, challenging youth to better themselves, and providing a safety net in the form of a service-enriched housing program.
By preparing more youth to graduate from high school and attend four-year colleges, UFC is challenging the current dismal outcomes for foster kids relative to education. Our programs dramatically increase their chance for success.
