Faithful Friends Mentoring is a church-based urban mentoring program that provides children support and stability through relationships that encourage personal growth and inspire hope.

The program matches volunteer singles, couples and families with children ages 6 through 9 for mentoring relationships. The mentor/mentee matches will meet 3-4 times each month for at least one year. Activities between the mentor and mentee are a collaborative decision - the child is included in the mentor's everyday activities. This may mean cooking a meal together or going to the park. It may also include helping the child with their homework or other academic skills.

Children are referred to Faithful Friends Mentoring by a parent or caregiver who believes the child's life will be enriched by additional, caring relationships. Parents hear about Faithful Friends from schools or other agencies that serve children.
