The Friendship Circle 
extends a helping hand to families who have children with special needs and involves them in a full range of social and Judaic experiences. The Circle's unique formula introduces teenage volunteers to the children and their families, and through the shared experiences, all are enriched.

Friends at Home is the core of the Friendship Circle. Each week, pairs of teenage volunteers visit participating children in their homes, offering friendship and sharing activities. These teens are specially trained for their role as friend and mentor.
Volunteering at the Friendship Circle is a significant form of community service - and is a most rewarding experience
