For every Friendship Circle program, children are matched with a trained teen volunteer (buddy) who gives friendship and support.

Participants along with their buddies, take part in activities developed specifically to meet their needs, with a focus on social and emotional skill development in a natural environment along with their peers. A quiet sensory room and alternative activities are always available.

Our programs are inspired by Jewish values and traditions.

The children's programs are supported in part by the Jewish Community Federation.
