Friends of Ridge Road (FORR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and serves as a governing body that provides network opportunities and support sports, developmental and educational programs of the city's Park and Recreation Department for Ridge Road Recreational Center.  We are a group of volunteers and active participants who support all programs through various fundraising activities.

Friends of Ridge Road was established in 2008 as a subsidiary of Ridge Road Parent Association.


Membership for the FORR is open to anyone who lives in the community and desires to commit to making a distinct difference in the Ridge Road Community.

The Friends group holds monthly meetings on the 1st Monday of each month.  Meetings are held at Ridge Road Recreation Center located at 802 Ridge Road SE, Washington, D.C.  20019.  By joining Friends you will have made a personal commitment  to better our community.

The FORR's mission is to provide a safe environment by cultivating relationships with community members and partnerships with area businesses.  To bridge the gap between youth and seniors by establishing a career development tutoring/mentoring program.  To support educational, developmental and athletic programs while implementing community-based projects.   With the help of donations from supporters such as you, we are confident that our programs will serve as a catalyst for change and further enhance the lives of those in our community.


The goal of FORR is to advocate for a new facility for Ridge Road Recreation Center that provides a gym, classrooms with internet accessibility.  These additions would help provide a productive learning environment, skills and resources necessary to build self-sufficient prosperous lives to youth and senior citizens.
