Make a difference in your life and your community and join the Jewish Family Service Citizens chapter of Best Buddies International for adults in their one-to-one friendship program. In the JFS chapter, Jewish adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) become buddies and are matched with Jewish neurotypical adults who become their peer buddies. When you become a buddy, the lasting friendship that develops helps to reduce the social isolation that is frequently associated with individuals with IDD.

Best Buddies International is a program with chapters all over the world.  Jewish Family Service Best Buddies Citizens chapter matches adults with and without IDD in one-to-one friendships that develop and are sustained over many years. The JFS chapter is unique in that Jewish adults are matched with each other with the goal of creating deeper friendships and connections to the Colorado Jewish community and each other.
