    Overview

    The Friendship Circle Philadelphia Region South connects teens and young adults to youth with special needs and their families, offering a full range of Jewish and social experiences.

    Building friendships can be challenging. Friends@Home supports building friendships through a unique "at home" platform. Meeting children and teens with disabilities at their home, there is a sense of comfort and tons of activities that they can enjoy with friends.

    Through a thoughtful pairing process, we identify teens with similar hobbies and interests. We guide the initial introduction and first meetings helping to create a bond that pairs can then foster independently. Together, they can play games, make crafts, play sports, read books, and enjoy activities they like.
