Bay Area Friendship Circle creates inclusion and friendship for children and teens with special needs.  We empower our teen volunteers to become engaged and caring community leaders.



We strive to create a more compassionate community in which individuals with special needs are fully embraced as contributing members. Our teen volunteers gain a deeper and more meaningful perspective on life, which shapes how they will impact the world for the better.

Each Friendship Circle branch operates under its own 501(c)(3): Bay Area Friendship Circle - Tax ID# 20-4889813.
