Designed to foster relationships between community teen volunteers and children, teens and young adults with special needs. All children are embraced for who they are as individuals regardless of their physical, cognitive or “invisible” special needs, mainstream or not.

Teen volunteers get a chance to engage in direct service and develop a deeper connection with the Jewish community, ultimately inspiring them to become leaders in high school, college and beyond. Friendship Circle also provides parents of children with special needs a much-needed support network including educational opportunities and a connection to adults in the broader community.
