Know the feeling you get when you're around friends who really care for you, who really love you, who really SEE you? Every person deserves this, regardless of ability. Friendship Circle seeks to provide opportunities for friendship and connection for kids, teens and young adults with disabilities.

The Friendship Circle programs provide opportunities to connect with peers, develop life and social skills, and build self-confidence. Through one-on-one buddy interactions, music therapy, arts, movement, STEM, and more, participants get a chance to try new things while having fun! Friendship Circle also provide important respite for parents and family!

Step One: Register

If you are interested in registering your child or teen with special needs in Friendship Circle's programming and events, please complete the form below. Filling out this form does not guarantee your child a spot in our program.

Step Two: Meet with Friendship Circle 

Friendship Circle requires that all new families participate in an intake meeting before they can participate in programs. You will meet with our Program Manager who will give you an overview of our programs, how to RSVP, and discuss the programs that you would like to participate in. The intake is also a good time to ask any questions or share any concerns you may have, and discuss payment options, including DDA.

Step Three: RSVP for Programs

Once we receive your registration form and you’ve met with Friendship Circle Staff, you will receive a welcome email with information on how to RSVP for programs and will be added to our email and text communications! Then you’re ready to attend your first program! We ask that a parent of guardian stay for the duration of your first program visit.
