Build friendships! Be a buddy! (18+)

As a Buddy, you can be a trusted friend to an adult with special needs living in one of our Independent Living Apartment buildings located across the Metro Area. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you'll enjoy them even more with your Buddy- whether it’s bowling, reading, cooking, or watching movies. Create memories that will last a lifetime. Make a difference. Be-A-Buddy!
