Providing adults with meaningful opportunities to assist the poor.

Who we are

Founded in 2006 by Peter White, the group works on projects in Northport and throughout Long Island and builds partnerships in Nicaragua, continuing and complementing the decades of hands-on work done by Peter's former Northport High School group, Students for 60,000, which he advised until his retirement.

Projects range from building homes, supporting education, and creating potable water systems in Nicaragua to helping the needy locally through housing and nutritional support, establishing community gardens, working with laborers and the homeless, and much more. Friends is unique in that it enables people to volunteer and put their real-life skills to use.

From college students to senior citizens, we welcome you to join us as we walk hand in hand with the poor, providing the resources they need to break the vicious cycles of poverty.
