Friends of the Children-Boston

Mission: Friends of the Children works with high-risk children to change the story of their lives and break the cycle of poverty. Each child is paired with a salaried, professional mentor for 12 ½ years, from kindergarten through high school. The program is based on research that has shown the single most important factor for building resiliency in children who face the highest risks is a long-term, consistent relationship with a caring adult.

Purpose of 2017-18 TPC Grant: Funding will underwrite the on-boarding of a new class of 13 Achievers from the Higginson Elementary School in Roxbury, a consistently under-performing school.
