The Friendship Circle is a unique organization that addresses the challenges facing the families of children with special needs in an innovative way.

The program begins with the pairing of local teenagers with children for weekly “Friends at Home” visits, but hardly ends there. Through a full range of activities and events, the Circle creates its own special environment of friendship and love.

The Friendship Circle programs are offered free of charge to qualifying families.

Why is our program unique?

While many organizations address the issues of children with special needs, most are focused on goal-oriented therapeutic care. The Friendship Circle brings another dimension in that it offers unconditional love. By having this love flow from the youthful spirit of well-guided teenagers, its effectiveness has proven to be remarkable. These volunteers have been able to reach the children in ways that professionals, or even family members, have not.

Furthermore, the program has had a profound effect on the teenagers themselves, instilling within them the values of giving and gratitude.
