When I was looking for a non-profit organization to get involved with, I knew I wanted one that had a clear mission to help youth in need, a committed team, and a proven track record of maximizing the use of every dollar donated. I could not be more pleased with my discovery of Friends of San Francisco Independent Living Skills Program ("Friends"). Driven by an all-volunteer board, Friends provides emancipating youth with grants and scholarships that help the youth stay in school and pursue their dreams. I had a chance at a recent event to meet some of the youth that this organization serves and hear many of their stories - so much determination to reach their goals even amidst devastating challenges. The founders of Friends are phenomenal and have poured more than just time and money into this organization - they pour their heart and soul. Like the youth that Friends supports, they are an inspiration! I am proud to be involved with Friends, and believe them to be very deserving of a top-rating. Easiest review I've ever given.
