Friends @ Home pairs teenage volunteers and children with special needs for hours of fun and friendship through weekly home visits. This provides children the chance to bond with their volunteers in an environment they are most comfortable in, while their parents and siblings receive much-needed respite. Through the weekly visits, the pair establish a warm friendship that combats the loneliness and isolation so often felt by individuals with special needs while their teen volunteers learn the priceless value of giving. 

Hanging with Friends is the equivalent of Friends@Home for adult participants, pairing them with young adult volunteers. These visits are not limited to the home and the pair can go out on their own.

These visits can be arranged to accommodate a wide variety of schedules and logistics. Please contact us if you'd like Friends@Home or Hanging with Friends for your child or if you're a volunteer wanting to be paired as a buddy for either program.

*Friendship Circle requires a parent to be home at the time of the visit for Friends@Home.
