About Friendship CircleWe turn strangers into friends and friends into family
Our core program pairs local teens and children with special needs for weekly visits; the basis of our genuine friendships. Through a broad range of activities and events, Friendship Circle creates an atmosphere of acceptance, recognizing that all people, regardless of the obstacles and challenges they may experience, are sacred, worthy of love, and have something to contribute.
Last year, with the help of our 35 teen friends, Friendship Circle provided programming and friendship to 25 young people with special needs.
Hours of Friendship
Friendship Circle is founded on the idea that each of us has a G-dly soul with a unique mission in this world. We all have inherent value and are worthy of love, respect, and opportunities to connect.
