Unfortunately, children with special needs often don't have the opportunity to celebrate basic milestones like birthday parties or attend after-school clubs and high school projects. These events can be a nightmare for children with special needs, or they can become unique opportunities that lend these children confidence, help them overcome their limitations, and ultimately enable them to live their lives to the fullest.
A mission to end loneliness
At the core of Friendship Circle is the cultivation of genuine friendships to bring out the best in every child and volunteer. We've created an internal paradigm shift by demonstrating the intrinsic value of friendship itself as a means of its own. Connecting with another individual, even without any tangible outcome, has been proven to provide a sense of security and meaning to all individuals involved members and volunteers alike.
