Our ProgramsSharing the joy of "Just Hanging Out"
We offer several different types of programs to cater to the needs of our different friends.
Through our Friends@Home program, a Teen Friend will visit your child with special needs at your home on a weekly basis. Your child will be engaged in a variety of activities based on their preferences and interests. Over time, a friendship will develop from the mutual respect and understanding of these new friends.
This relationship benefits each participant in many unique ways. For your child, these visits provide an opportunity to connect with a friend in a social setting. For you, the parents, it is a chance to proudly watch your child develop a friendship. Often, these visits also offer you the possibility of attending to housework, spending time with your other children, or taking a few moments for yourself. For the Teen Friend, these visits are a source of inspiration, motivating them to share their time and talents with others.
