Friendship Circle of Central Jersey Better Together

Programs

Friends at Home

Children with special needs often have many adults in their lives – parents, teachers, therapists and doctors. The Friends at Home program offers the one thing these children are missing out on: friendship. Each week, a pair of specially trained teen volunteers visits their special friend in his or her home, offering companionship, laughter, and fun. In exchange, the teen volunteers learn the value of giving back and gain respect and empathy for those facing difficult challenges.

Swim and Sports gives the children an opportunity to excel in their swimming skills and strengthen their muscle tone as well as instill independence and confidence as they enjoy time in the pool and participate in a variety of proffessional sport activities. Each month we will focus on the rules and skills of another sport.
