Benefactors

Since 1994, Friendship Circle’s mission has been to give children with special needs friendship and inclusive opportunities. Blessed by the warm embrace and generous support of the community, Friendship Circle now operates a widely emulated, state-of-the-art educational and activity center. Friendship Circle has now over 700 teen and adult volunteers and serves thousands of families with children who have special needs.

All Benefactors

We would like to thank the generous donors who have contributed to this campaign.

Friendship Circle is honored to commemorate the significant contribution & dedication the Farber family has given to the future of individuals with special needs.
