Portland mentorship program expands to help Vancouver kids.
There's excitement brewing in Vancouver, Wash., as Friends of the Children opens a new chapter, Friends of the Children–SW Washington. Here are a few quotes from the article in The Columbian:
"It's really exciting to be growing on this side of the river and in this community," said Allison Pauletto, the new executive director in Vancouver.
"I got to see the power of the program throughout all the years of elementary (school)," Chase said, emphasizing the benefit to the children. "Their trajectory changes. They get to experience a whole different side of life."
