Perry Washington

Professional Mentor - Friend

Perry joined Friends Lane County in November 2021, coming to us after over 10 years working with marginalized youth in Lane County. Through his prior work as well as Pop Warner coaching Perry has developed a relationship focused approach to services and found himself continuing to gravitate to mentoring roles. Having worked with runaway and homeless, LGBTQIA+, nonnative speaking, ODHS, and youth of color has been a wealth of learning experience. Perry enjoys the personal interactions and continuing to gain and share knowledge with developing minds. Having been blessed to help many children and families, though for relatively short periods, Perry is excited to be with Friends of the Children, making a long-term commitment seeing kids through graduation.

When not working Perry enjoys spending time with his partner, three kids and a spunky cat.
