About Us

Children's Friend has been serving Rhode Island's most vulnerable children and their families since 1834. The children that we serve face a myriad of obstacles in their lives, including poverty, language barriers, lack of education, substance abuse, and difficulty accessing health care. Because of these obstacles, many of their parents have difficulty caring for them.

At Children's Friend, we support families and help them find the strength to overcome their hurdles. By creating safe and nurturing environments for children during the crucial early years, and by helping parents gain access to the resources, education, and support that they need, we can give children the foundation to help them live healthy and productive lives.

Mission: Children's Friend is the innovative leader in improving the well-being and healthy development of Rhode Island's most vulnerable young children. We accomplish this by providing flexible, effective, and culturally-relevant services, and advocating for programs and policies that support and strengthen these children and their families.

A non-profit organization founded in 1834, Children's Friend is a leading provider of child welfare, family support, mental health, and youth development services.

We believe that providing comprehensive and effective services to vulnerable young children is not only a moral obligation, but also a prudent financial investment for society to make.

Across Rhode Island, our staff provides services to help over 32,563 individuals annually.

Vision: Our vision is that every child in Rhode Island grows and develops in a safe, healthy, loving, and stable family.
