Friends of the Children is Ashland, Kentucky’s oldest non-profit organization. Volunteers known as “friends” shop with pre-school through high school students to provide much needed clothing. Children are identified through the Ashland Independent Schools Resource Centers and the clothes are purchased from generous donations and grants.
We believe that each child in our community should have the opportunity to develop his or her unique talents, hopes, and dreams. By providing new clothes to children in need, we can contribute to their well being, to their feeling of self-worth, and to their individual development.
