Friendship Place relies on partner organizations to help us further our cause. Our partners help us in a variety of ways, and we are grateful for all of their support. We are always looking for new partners. If you are interested in joining with us please contact Chris Rutledge at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-503-2968.
