Circle of Friends
You may only be one person in this world, but to one person you may be the world.
Circle of Friends crosses the invisible line separating teens with special needs from the other teens by providing bi-weekly activities that encourage youth to get to know each other and build friendships with students in their school.
Circle of Friends (COF) has given my son a sense of belonging. He has developed many friendships with kids he would have probably not met if it wasn't for this group. It is very comforting to know that there are people who take pride in helping kids with disabilities. The leadership is outstanding and helps teach the kids many valuable learning lessons. I am so happy we found this group and my son looks forward to the activities. He likes just being able to be himself.
