Support Our Work


As the populations of King and Snohomish Counties have increased over the past few decades, so too have the numbers of young people grappling with issues such as homelessness, family violence and substance abuse.

Friends of Youth exists solely to deal with those issues. Since 1951, we have been providing a broad range of services for youth in challenging circumstances. Our team of skilled, dedicated employees and volunteers has delivered a strong track record of positively impacting young people’s lives.

In addition to government grants, Friends of Youth relies on private donations to maintain its staff and keep operations running at the highest level. So please give today, whether as an individual or on behalf of a corporation. You’ll be keeping the local community strong, you’ll invest in the next generation, and you’ll make a positive impact on the lives of those who need it the most.
