THE FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE

Together we can perform miracles!

The Friendship Circle of Huntington & Melville is a unique program that pairs children with special needs with caring, dedicated volunteers who form special relationships with them, and provides support to their families.

The Friendship Circle is designed to enhance the lives of children with special needs, provide friendship, support, encouragement, and practical help in dealing with challenges, provide respite to their parents, and increase the sensitivity, competence, and commitment to community service in its teenage volunteer population.

The Friendship Circle of Melville & Huntington reaches out and involves children with special needs in a full range of Jewish and social experiences.

THE FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE TODAY

Together we can perform miracles!

The Friendship Circle’s wide array of innovative programming promotes a greater awareness and understanding of both the unique needs and the unique gifts of people with special needs, and encourages respect and empathy for those facing difficult challenges.

The children and families benefit from home visits, recreational group programming, and athletic opportunities. Together with parents and siblings, children and teens with special needs celebrate the holidays with exciting, interactive programs that bring to life the spirit and richness of traditions. The Volunteer Club offers meaningful educational and social events for the teen mentors.
