The Friendship Circle is a non denominational organisation that provides assistance and support to the families of children with special needs regardless of background, faith, race, color or religion. In addition to helping those in need, the Friendship Circle enriches its vast network of volunteers by enabling them to reap the rewards of selfless giving.

The Friendship Circle was founded on the idea that within each person is a soul, and that soul is the same regardless of any limitations that may surround it. Th´╗┐at regardless of whatever natural gifts we may have or lack, regardless of what obstacles and challenges we may confront, our souls are sacred and worthy of boundless love.We believe that every human being, deserves the gift of true friendship. Friendship has a ripple effect on the community, impacting the lives of all involved, raising the consciousness of society at large.

Our core activity is the Friends at Home Program. Pairs of teenager volunteers are introduced to a special needs child in the child's home, providing friendship for children who have none. They visit on a weekly basis and spend time playing with the children, doing activities such as arts and crafts, listening to music, playing games or sometimes just being their companion while they sit and watch TV.
