Mission Statement

Mission
The Friendship Circle is based on the Biblical commandment of V’Ahavta L’Reacha Kamocha, "to love your fellow as yourself.",

The Friendship Circle carries out that concept in life-changing ways by:

Engaging children and teens with special needs through a full range of experiences. Supporting parents and members with much needed respite and support. Enriching, inspiring and motivating teens to share their time and talents with others. And connecting teen volunteers, children with special needs, and their families to the
Jewish community through educational and social opportunities.

By fulfilling its mission, the Friendship Circle is helping to build a better world for children with special needs, one good deed at a time.

Description

Friendship Circle pairs teenage volunteers with children who have special needs. The result is a win-win situation for all as the kids gain a friend, the volunteers gain amazing experience and learn and benefit from their special friend, the families gain support, and the community gains advocates as the teens spread the message of acceptance.
