We've Got Friends mission is to provide an engaging social environment where teens with special needs can interact with their peers, fostering connections, a sense of community, social skills, confidence, and socio-emotional health. All of our programming is free; as one of our core values, we believe cost should not limit your access to friendship. We help build social circles through engagement and genuine interactions.
We provide the opportunity and activities for teens with special needs ages 7-21 to establish their own connections through common interests. WGF currently runs a variety of social groups in multiple chapters, serving hundreds of teens annually, including a virtual group that meets multiple times per week. We also offer special event days, which provide our teens with opportunities to go on developmentally-appropriate outings including baseball games, rock climbing, art events and more. None of this would be possible without the help of our volunteers who help facilitate our hangouts both in person and virtually. The little time you spend with us makes a big difference!
