Supportive Community

Friendship Circle provides families with a supportive community that gives you the opportunity to form real friendships within a non-judgmental environment.

Friendship Circle provides over 10 programs that are designed to nurture your child’s social, physical and cognitive skills. We work individually with each family to understand their specific needs and concerns related to each child’s abilities and disability.

Creating Frienships

Friendship Circle creates friendship in the lives of individuals with special needs and those facing isolation while providing an opportunity to become a contributing member of the community.

Feel supported + Connected

Friendship Circle aims to promote an inclusive community that values all individuals regardless of the challenges they face.

Social Support

At the heart of all of the Friendship Circle’s programming is the belief that each and every individual can be a productive member of the community and benefit from the social support offered by one’s peers.

Acceptance + Inclusivity

Friendship, acceptance and a chance to participate in socially accepted bonding opportunities are critical to achieving this type of inclusive society.
