Friendship Circle of Houston frienship circle


“Join our family and circle of friends”

It takes every member of your family to form the circle that completes our Jewish community, including your child with special needs. The Friendship Circle exists to meet the needs of your child in a wonderful, unique way. Dedicated teenage volunteers, who are signed up to make a difference, become a friend and mentor to your son or daughter, thereby giving them the opportunities of friends, play dates and programs that every child enjoys, and deserves.

Through our Friends at Home program, your child has the weekly joy of a regular play date, a pair of friends who come to your home just for him or her. While your child is happily learning, playing, and being entertained, you will enjoy a deserved respite.

Our series of Shabbatons, Sunday Circles, Bowling Buddies and Holiday Programs will give your child the opportunity to create memorable experiences, often shared together with siblings and parents. And of course our volunteers will be there to give your child personal love and attention.

The Friendship Circle is here to help you and your child. Our dedicated staff works with the volunteers to be an asset to you and your family. The training that the teens receive encourages them to create an everlasting friendship with your child.

We invite your child to join The Friendship Circle and become a part of the family.
