When mentors commit from kindergarten through high school graduation.
We are proud to share our program was featured in a story by WBEZ's Sarah Karp. Karp had the opportunity to visit one of our partner schools and spend time with our staff, including Friend Felix Kombwa. She gained an understanding of our program and the commitment we make to the youth and families in our program.
All kids should have a world of opportunity in front of them, but so many don't because of no fault of their own. Early intervention is powerful and can help break the cycles of intergenerational trauma, violence and poverty. And that's why Friends of the Children–Chicago exists – to empower and transform the lives of Chicago's highest priority youth.
