  Friends at Home

In a home setting, a trained and dedicated volunteer visits a child with special needs on a weekly basis. A special bond is created as they engage in enjoyable activities and innovative crafts. The child's life is illuminated in a most significant fashion as they await the visit of their friend. The parents use this opportunity to enjoy a weekly respite as their child basks in the friendship of the volunteer

 
Special Programs  ( For those special events!!!)

 Special Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Everyone deserves to celebrate their Bar or Bat Mitzvah surrounded by family and friends. To help teenagers with special needs commemorate this important milestone in a meaningful way, The Friendship Circle has created an individualized program of study and preparation that culminates in a candle-lighting ceremony for girls and a minyan for boys. A party to celebrate the achievements of the Bnei Mitzvah is also held for family and friends.
