Share the Spirit of #GivingTuesday!

After Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, comes our favorite day of the year – Giving Tuesday – a day to give back!

This year, on Tuesday, November 28th, Friends of the Family is once again a part of this global call to action when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers and more will all come together to encourage more, better,
and smarter giving during the Holiday Season.

If you want to celebrate Giving Tuesday and support FOF and the thousands of children and families who depend on this organization for help, this is a great opportunity. Just click HERE to visit our Giving Page!

Please know that as we approach the upcoming holidays, we are giving thanks for you and all you do for Friends of the Family.
Thank you so much!


Please join us for any and all of these healthy and fun Family Wellness Institute activities taking place at FOF during November. Be sure to register in advance when that is requested as the activities are getting more and more popular. Here’s the LINK to the calendar!

Great Volunteer Opportunity!

Friends of the Family (FOF) is seeking volunteers for their LA2050-funded Man2Man Project. Are you an adult male over 30 who would like to have a positive impact on a young man’s life as he strives to step up to fatherhood? Ideal volunteers would reside in the LA Metro area, be fathers themselves (not mandatory), be well established in their lives and careers, and be able to commit to 6 - 8 hours per month during 2017 to mentor a participant in FOF’s Young Dads program. All activities and mentor coaching will be coordinated by the agency.

The M2M Program develops vibrant communities by supporting two generations of young fathers and their children through quality mentoring relationships and by building social networks of adults committed to making life better for future generations. If you have wisdom to share and support to provide, please contact us. For more information, please contact Brenda Hillhouse, Director of Development, at 818/988-4430 or
