Mission Statement

The Friendship Circle's Mission is to provide children with special needs with a full range of social recreational experiences, provide their parents with respite and support, enrich, inspire and motivate teens through sharing of themselves with others.

Description

The Friendship Circle of Alabama was founded in 2012 with the mission to make Alabama a more inclusive environment for the special needs community. Friendship Circle has grown exponentially over the past six years. We have over thirty teen volunteers and are working to incorporate more teen and adult volunteers. Our programs service individuals from toddler to child and teen to young adult. Our programs also support the parents and families of individuals with special needs.

While individuals with special needs have many resources available-doctors, therapists, etc., their social needs, especially with typical peers, are often very limited. Through our programming, Friendship Circle promotes an inclusive community that values all individuals regardless of the challenges they face through social and recreational services.
