Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Boston

  • 3 people are interested

Seeking a Friend for Devin, a man in his 30s from Brookline who works as a security guard and is described by his friends as a thoughtful and kind person. Devin has epilepsy and a learning disability, and would love to have a Friend who he could spend time with and help his anxiety in social situations. As an opera singer, Devin enjoys music and entertainment. He also ADORES his Basset Hound!

Devin wants to be matched with a Friend in the MAGIC program (Monthly Activity Groups in the Community), where matches meet, now virtually, once a month for an agency-sponsored group activity. When things are completely safe for matches to resume group activities, access to Brookline, Brighton, Allston, Newton, or Boston, where most MAGIC activities take place, will be via public transportation or car. A one-year commitment is required. Our amazing Clinical Match Specialists will also work with each match to provide support to the relationship!
