United Friends of the Children is dedicated to the premise that foster youth deserve a successful adulthood.
Through our Housing and Education Programs, foster youth are provided with the opportunity to graduate from high school, attend and graduate from college, get a job, find housing and have a support system that moves them gradually towards independence.
Our goal is that the youth in our programs not only survive, but that they thrive.

Board + Staff
I have had the privilege of being involved with UFC for over twenty-five years, and throughout that time, I have always been humbled by the caring and gifted group of people at UFC who have devoted themselves to the plight of foster youth, and I have consistently been amazed by the resilience and strength of the youth we strive to serve. As you look through our website, I hope you will be moved to support UFC as we try to make a difference in the lives of these kids, by helping them with their education, and by showing them that college can be a reality, and by teaching them life skills, and by thinking and worrying about them. Our remarkable staff forges consistent and continuing relationships with our kids as we strive to ready them for a future that works.” Read More >Mitch Evall, Board Chair
