Friends of the Children Fargo-Moorhead connects children in difficult circumstances – all of whom have unique talents – to a paid, professional mentor called a "Friend". We hire and train Friends whose full-time jobs are to support our youth to succeed, despite the extremely challenging situations they experience, from as early as age 4 through high school graduation – 12+ years, no matter what.

Our model is distinct, courageous and proven. Friends are experts in building sustained and nurturing relationships with youth. Our model is evidence-informed and research-based, and we have proven long-term outcomes to show it works.

This is at the core of what we do. Each day, our Friends advocate and help amplify the voices of our youth and their families who often become voiceless in the midst of their challenges. Friends also create meaningful experiences that teach youth to build life skills and make informed decisions while exploring the child’s diverse talents and interests.

Our model is real, and it works. We can't wait to share more with you!
