The Friendship Circle program is amazing. The main mission is to make a better world one friendship at a time. This is furthered by facilitating friendships with individuals that have a difficult time making friends–kids with disabilities.
There are chapters around the country. The original one started in Michigan and they have an amazing program, one we can all hope to have in the future. Here is a link to their web: http://www.friendshipcircle.org/
We also have a local chapter here in Seattle. We are working to make it fill all of Seattle’s needs, but we are new and small, so take a look and Donate if you can! There is so much to do and so many great people involved take a look. Here is a link: http://www.friendshipcirclewa.org/
Our local chapter is having a Dinner to thank all of the Volunteers this weekend, May 6th! Dev is both a volunteer and a friend! They meet 2-4 times a month and hang out and work towards peer to peer interactions and fun!
I’ll post more soon with more information after the dinner!
