About

Home with Friends

1 hour weekly!

The Home with Friends program gives you the chance to get to know your Special Friends in the environment they are most comfortable in; their own homes. Together you can bake cookies, play games, create arts and crafts items, play in the snow, read books, or do just about anything you can think of! The opportunities are endless for the two of you to have a great time together - it's no wonder children with special-needs often wait the whole week for the moment their "Friend" (that's you) walks through the door! A Home with Friends volunteer coordinator will set you up with a family, tell you everything you need to know, and constantly keep in touch with you to make sure everything runs smoothly. So make the highlight of the child's week yours too - join Home with Friends today!
