"When a family has a child with special needs, everything changes.”

At The Friendship Circle, we work at getting to know the families of our special friends. Not only do we offer programs and activities for children with special needs, but we also assist their parents and siblings.

We partner with each family to understand its members' specific needs and concerns and to offer them the services, programs and support they need the most. Hundreds of area teens in the  volunteer club are the "engine" that enables us to be individually responsive to each family.

As kids grow and needs change, The Friendship Circle is there ready to start new programs and fill each need.


Moms Night Out
A special evening dedicated to you high powered moms! We give you a chance to unwind, relax, and socialize with other Friendship Circle moms. 

Sibling Support Programs
Siblings of children with special needs often have difficulty dealing with the many emotions they may feel. Our Sibling Support programs provide opportunities for brothers and sisters of children with special needs to get together to learn and share with their peers. Between the creative discussions and fun activities, siblings can acquire skills that they can use to face their own challenging situations.
