Making a difference in the lives of youth with special needs!
Friends are not a luxury. They’re a necessity. Friendship House provides a fully-inclusive and non-judgemental environment that nurtures relationships and helps to create lifelong friendships for individuals with disabilities.
Here, we make friends!
Friendship House is where Jojo feels he belongs and it’s his friendship “house” a warm, caring, and fun Jewish environment where everyone is made to feel welcome. The best is when he runs inside without looking back to say goodbye at drop-off!

My experience at the Friendship House has been wonderful. The Friendship House gives me an opportunity to give back to the world and create remarkable friendships with my fellow volunteers and our special friends! These bonds are golden!
Friendship House has been a wonderful experience for my 12-year-old son with autism. The activities are great and the social aspect of it is so important for him. We are so thankful and appreciative to be a part of it.

When volunteering at Friendship House, I looked forward to getting the most loving hug from my buddy, Avery. Every event, there were planned activities that would make my buddy smile. Seeing her happy was ultimately what I loved about volunteering. Friendship House taught me to take in every moment and be in the present. My buddy, especially, taught me that life is so beautiful. She also taught me to have patience and if something doesn't go right, that it's ok.
