Description

The Friendship Circe is all about building a better world for children with special needs ... one friend at a time.

Simply put, The Friendship Circle lets children and teens with special needs enjoy many of the social and recreational opportunities afforded to the community at large. We also provide a way for teenagers to offer respite and friendship to these children and their families.

For over 6 years, our Circle has touched lives in the Jewish community and beyond:

  • Children with special needs look forward to weekly visits or "Sunday Fundays" — and discover what they can do, instead of what they can't.
  • Families of children with special needs enjoy a needed respite and the pleasure of watching their children being welcomed by our community.
  • Teenage volunteers learn the value of giving and experience the satisfaction of making a meaningful difference in a child's life.
