Mission

Making Relationships. Changing Lives

Friendship Community Center holds the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive. As such, our mission is to provide children (ages 4-18) facing adversity with strong and enduring relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

By partnering with our community we are accountable for each child in our programs achieving:

  • Higher aspirations, greater confidence, and better relationships
  • Avoidance of risky behaviors
  • Educational success

Our Programs Start Something Big

We have been making a difference in the lives of our kids since 1980. Here’s the proof. Our studies show that kids who successfully complete our programs are:

  • more confident in themselves
  • able to get along better with their families
  • less likely to begin using illegal drugs and alcohol
