|Summary:||The heart of The Friendship Circle pairs teenage buddies with special needs children and teens for home visits.|
The heart of The Friendship Circle is our Friends at Home program. Each week, pairs of teenage buddies visit children with special needs at home. These one to two hour weekly visits offer respite to families while a bond is established between the buddy and their special friends. Meaningful friendships are created through board games, stories, music, crafts, and child appropriate play. Visits are arranged to accommodate a variety of schedules, and a home interview is necessary in order to participate.
VOLUNTEERS MUST CONTACT FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE FOR PARTICIPATION
