Mission Statement

The Friendship Circle is a youth oriented volunteer program that matches children with special needs with teenage/young adults mentors. The alliance successfully addresses three objectives.

1. To meet the physical, social and emotional needs of each child in an enjoyable and meaningful manner. It strives to enhance life skills, widen the social horizon, and provide holiday awareness amongst the special needs community.

2. It seeks to raise consciousness, inclusiveness, and a sense of responsibility amongst young adults by encouraging and promoting big brother/sister volunteerism.

3. It offers the family a weekly respite, community support, and a host of social/holiday events.

Description

The Friendship Circle is a unique organization with a refreshing approach to helping families of children with special needs and involving them in a full range of social and Judaic experiences. Our innovative programming and creative ideas are designed to foster a relationship with community teenagers and the children by drawing on the love, boundless energy and dynamism of our teenage population. The Friendship Circle offers unconditional love with no strings attached. We serve the needs of the special needs child, the parents, siblings and our teenage volunteers.
