Carly Krasner

The Friendship Circle was launched in 1994 with a simple goal: to bring happiness and companionship to children and young adults with special needs. Friendship Circle helps create meaningful relationships between volunteers and children with special needs, increasing confidence, igniting dreams, and redefining worldviews for both parties. Everyone in this world has a unique purpose. When we focus on abilities instead of disabilities, those with special needs, can be part of the strongest friendships and influence people in positive ways that others can’t. Thank you so much to all those who have supported this cause in my honor and hope that the Friendship Circle’s goal of cultivating friendships to over 7,500 special children will inspire those of you who have not yet done so to join as well! Together we can make a difference!
