Mission Statement

The Friendship Circle of Virginia (FCVA) is a non profit organization that encourages companionship and social opportunities for children and individuals with disabilities by helping to create meaningful social experiences at home and throughout the community. This is accomplished by facilitating friendships and creating opportunities with teen friends and encourages understanding, acceptance, and true friendship within our communities. Creating these experiences will enable our youth to grow into leaders who appreciate the differences amongst us and embrace our similarities.

Description

The Friendship Circle of VA (FCVA) is an international, non-profit organization that focuses on building friendships between individuals with disabilities and teen volunteers. It is free for all participants and is open to individuals with any kind of disability at any age and people from all religious backgrounds.

Children with disabilities receive therapy and intensive schooling, however there are few opportunities for the children to make friends and just have a good time. This is what Friendship Circle is all about: Building friendships and fun!
