The Friendship Circle Philadelphia Region South


    The Friendship Circle is all about building a better world for children with special needs … one friend at a time.

    Simply put, The Friendship Circle lets children and teens with special needs enjoy many of the social and recreational opportunities afforded to the community at large. We also provide a way for teenagers to offer respite and friendship to children and their families. 

    For over 6 years, our Circle has touched lives in the Jewish community and beyond:

    • Children with special needs look forward to weekly visits or "Sunday Fundays" — and discover what a friendship can bring. Find out more  


    • Families of children with special needs enjoy a respite and the pleasure of watching their children being welcomed by our community. Find out more    


    • Teenage volunteers learn the value of giving and experience the satisfaction of making a meaningful difference in a child's life. Find out more
    • Adult volunteers  are vital to the success of our programs throughout the year. Find out more

    Help us complete the circle, and together, we can work miracles.
