Our ProgramsSharing the joy of "Just Hanging Out"
We offer several different types of programs to cater to the needs of our different friends.
Prior to COVID-19, our flagship program was Friends@Home, when a Teen Friend would visit their Special Friend at home on a weekly basis. The friends engaged in a variety of activities based on the Special Friend’s preferences and interests. Over time, a friendship developed from the mutual respect and understanding of the new friends.
Currently, our Friends@Home program has transitioned to Friends On Call which offers similar opportunities for relationship building via Facetime, Zoom, or Phone Calls. These relationships benefit each participant in many unique ways. Providing an opportunity to connect with a friend in a safe social setting; offering a chance to get away from the stresses of social media and peer pressure; these visits are an essential highlight of the week.
