Our Friendship Circle by the Sea lovingly supports individuals with special needs and their families through opportunities for social interaction, recreation, and friendship.
We celebrate your child AND support you, the foundation of your family. Parents in the Friendship Circle enjoy a regular respite needed to recharge and the pleasure of seeing their children become part of the community circle. Parents also come together in workshops and support groups based on their shared experience, empowering each other and developing a supportive community.
From teens to adults, anyone can make a difference by being a friend. Our Friendship Circle volunteers serve as mentors, advocates and, most importantly, as friends. They are making a meaningful difference for special needs families and remarkable bonds are being formed.
Whether in school, at home, by the beach or at our community center, our Friendship Circle programs are tailored to the needs and interests of special needs individuals and their families.
