At Friends of the Children–Seattle, professional mentors provide 16 hours of one-on-one support for our youth each month, from kindergarten through high school graduation, no matter what. The impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak have disproportionately affected many of our families and our support is urgent. Instead of spending time with youth in classrooms and afterschool activities, our mentors now are securing essentials for families, providing academic materials while school is suspended and providing consistent emotional and academic support through regular phone, text, and email contact.
With your support, our families will get through this. With your support, our mentors will continue their powerful relationships with their youth. With your support, our community will be okay. Thank you for being a part of our community, no matter what.
