Friends Helping Friends with Special Needs

Update: Dec. 21, 9:22pm

WOW. We are in awe of the tremendous outpour of support.

You have given us the confidence to shoot for an even more ambitious goal.

Thanks to additional support from our matchers, we now have just under 3 days left to reach our new goal of $96,000!

The Campaign

Valley Friendship Circle empowers connection and inclusion, and your gift empowers friendships.

Over the past year, we have all experienced the impact of social isolation. This, however, is not new to children, teens, and young adults with special needs who often have fewer opportunities to develop the meaningful connections that empower us.

Our programs address this critical need for individuals with special needs—friendship. We believe the power of friendship can change the world—the world of a child and the larger world we are building every single day of our lives. That is why we have not missed a beat in providing our services both virtually and in person.

The Friendship Circle relies on the generosity and support of our community, and you have the power to empower our participants and their families through your gift. Partner with us to continue providing inclusive, innovative, and life-changing programming to our community.

Every dollar that you donate will be generously matched multiplying your impact. Your help will guarantee the success of the campaign and reach our goal, over the TOP!

Share this challenge with friends and family and ask for their support!

Teenage volunteers learn the priceless value of giving, the curative power of friendship, and the vital importance of integrating children with special needs into our communities.
Parents and siblings receive much-needed respite and support from the Friendship Circle community, and all those who assist it.
