Organization Information

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide social opportunities designed for individuals with special needs. Our age-appropriate programs assist participants in forming new friendships, improving their self-esteem and increasing their sense of belonging in the community.

Description

Friends Connect Foundation helps teenagers with special needs build self-esteem, new friendships and an improved sense of belonging through free fitness, self-expression, music and social activities such as mini golfing, holiday parties, dance lessons, reading with bunnies, art, drum circle, gardening, cooking, field days, fitness, games and more. At each event, volunteer "buddies" are paired with a special needs participant to be their host, guide and friend while helping them engage in modifiable activities. We primarily serve residents of Monmouth County ages 12 through 21 years old and host events all year long. All participants and volunteers must register in advance at https://friendsconnectfoundation.org/register. To learn more, please visit https://friendsconnectfoundation.org
