Our Mission

FRIENDS exists to help youth who come to the attention of the Virginia Beach Juvenile & Domestic Relations District Court. We are dedicated to providing charitable time, programs and resources to embrace at-risk youth and families with the help and support of a caring Virginia Beach community.

Our Work

FRIENDS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1991. We receive referrals from social workers, police officers, probation officers, schools and attorneys. The Virginia Beach Court Service Unit accepts both volunteers and interns.
