Circle of Friends is a revolutionary mentoring program that connects our community’s most vulnerable children with trained mentors, called Friends. We stay with our children from kindergarten through their high school graduation date to provide the consistent, caring support they so clearly need. We help our children develop the relationships, goals and skills necessary to break the cycles of poverty, abuse, and violence in order to become contributing members of our society and their community.

What We Do

Circle of Friends mentors spend quality one-on-one time with each of our children to build nurturing relationships that help them thrive, starting as early as kindergarten and first grade and continuing with them through high school.

Our Mission

To provide the most vulnerable child a loving, caring, nurturing and sustained relationship with an adult role model who teaches positive values and has attainable expectations for each child in order that they become healthy, productive members of our community.

Our Vision

To assist all children in the Sisters community to achieve their full potential.

We currently serve more than 30 children and anticipate growing each year to ensure that every child who needs a “Friend” has one.
