Match of the Year 
Congratulations to our 2015 Match of the Year, Elizabeth & Jenni!
After 5 years of mentorship through the Family of Friends Mentoring Program, mentor Jenni and mentee Elizabeth have become like family.  They continue to meet every single week; they have stuck by each other through challenges and joys and have built an incredible foundation for what will surely be a life-time of friendship.  We are so proud to have them as part of our program and congratulate them on this special award. 

Quality-Based Mentoring
In November 2014 Family of Friends was named a High-Quality Mentoring Program through the Quality-Based Mentoring Initiative at Oregon Mentors!  We are very proud of this accomplishment and thank Oregon Mentors for guiding us through this multi-year process.  As a result of this recognition, we feel more inspired and confident than ever to deliver positive outcomes for the children and volunteers in our community.  Click on the link below to learn more about this initiative.
