Eckerd Connects Friend of the Children Long-Term Mentorship Program
Eckerd Connects and Friends of the Children are working together to provide our foster children with a paid, full-time professional mentor—a “friend”.
The Friends of the Children program is a revolutionary mentoring model. It is transforming lives by pairing children with someone who is dedicated to working with them from the time they enter kindergarten or first grade until their high school graduation.
This commitment allows children in the program to receive the ongoing guidance and encouragement they need to develop emotionally, socially, and academically.
