About Us

Friend in Me pairs kids with disabilities (ages 8 to 18) with neurotypical volunteer students for free, one-on-one online games and conversations over Zoom on a weekly basis. Kids play games such as Uno, Connect 4, chess/checkers, Battleship, Minecraft, Roblox, Twenty Questions, Kahoot, etc. The goal of Friend in Me is to encourage long term friendships and provide social opportunities for kids with disabilities. We truly believe that if we can reach enough kids that we can begin to change the way that kids with disabilities are viewed by other kids and even by themselves.
