"When you see the GREATNESS in yourself and in others- friendship is always possible" 

Friends at Home     

Start date: SundayElul 19 /September 10 

Friends AHome  is a highly inclusive program that builds meaningful and ongoing relationships between Jewish children and teens who live with and without disability.  It provides friendship and socialization that is often a significant challenge for children living with disability.   

Weekly, pairs of volunteers spend time with their friend.   Together,  the trio plays games, sports crafts, reads books, has conversation and enjoy  being with one another.  Our friends are specially trained in inclusion  and in the interests and abilities of their friend in particular.  The consistency of the weekly visits, the training, and the flexibility that the friends have in scheduling their visits and selecting their own fun activities result in strong bonds of connection  that would not otherwise emerge naturally in the community.  

With so many opportunities to experience the joy of friendship, it is no wonder that children living with and without disability look forward to the weekly knock on the door that starts each Friends at Home visit!
