This is no better investment than in a young child. Children’s Friend, Rhode Island’s oldest child welfare agency, has been providing services to vulnerable young children and families since 1834.

Our mission is to promote the well-being and healthy development of Rhode Island’s most vulnerable children by providing flexible, effective and relevant services that support and strengthen families and communities.   Every dollar contributed to Children’s Friend goes directly towards helping children and families thanks to an endowment that covers administrative expenses. Thus, your gift has a significant impact on our ability to support at-risk children and families in our community. 

Your employer may offer a Matching Gift Program which could substantially increase your total gift to Children’s Friend. Please inquire at your place of employment to help enhance your gift.

Children’s Friend is a 501(c)3 tax exempt non-profit organization. It is also a United Way designee agency.
