2021 has been a challenging year for Friends of the Children, even more so for the children and families we serve. Yet we have much to be grateful for at this holiday season.
First, we’re grateful for incredible supporters like you! Despite the COVID pandemic, we continued to grow in 2021, adding four new employees and enrolling a new class of kindergarteners. Thanks to you, we’re now mentoring 110 children, on track to meet our plan to serve 400 Bayview Hunters Point youth.
