Everyone in this world has a unique purpose. When we focus on abilities instead of disabilities, those with special needs can be part of the strongest friendships and influence people in positive ways that others can’t. The Friendship Circle of Greater Fort Lauderdale offers a full range of social experiences such as Teen Scene, Cheer leading, Friends @ Home, and Young Adult Circle giving our children/young adults and volunteers the chance to build friendships to last a lifetime!

Get on board! Join our many caring and committed volunteers who give of their time, patience, and love. The payment is a unique friendship with someone who will immediately accept you, come to love you, and never forget you! Volunteering with the Friendship Circle means hours and hours of fun! It means gaining a sense of security and self-esteem that comes from knowing that what you do makes a difference in the life of a child.

The Friendship Circle is made up of five parts: volunteers, children, parents, staff, and  Supporters. The true beauty of the circle is how we all link together to form a seamless circle of friendship. The supporter provides the wherewithal for the Friendship Circle to exist. By observing the very obvious difference the program is making to so many lives, supporters of the Friendship Circle make the smiles of these special children their own!
