28 years ago, we launched with a simple mission: 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. 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.


We’ve created thousands of meaningful relationships between local volunteers and children with special needs, bringing companionship to those who need it most and watching friendship work its unique magic. Together, the volunteers and their special friends turn everyday events into special ones, helping each other learn and grow at every turn.

Through hiking, biking, and running, thousands of people have empowered unconditional friendships around the world. Together, we are combating loneliness one friendship at a time.
