Changing The World One Friendship At A Time

"I adore the Friendship Foundation because of the connection my children receive from the volunteers. They feel included instead of ostracized which is important in our lives. Knowing how much they look forward to the activities that the Friendship Foundation provides keeps me uplifted in spirit!"

"When I started volunteering four and a half years ago I was a shy, quiet and nervous kid. With the helpful tips from other volunteers combined with the participants' special spark and energy, I slowly came out of my shell. I learned to make new friends and felt so good inside when I was able to make others happy. Their smiles motivate me to keep coming back again and again. Through the friendly and positive environment, I've grown into a more mature, responsible and aware person. I love being a volunteer at the Friendship Foundation."

The Friendship Foundation has opened the door for me to befriend some of the most amazing kids that I never would have gotten the chance to know before. My closest friend is Jacob; he is hands down one of the smiliest, kindest, and most genuine person I have ever encountered. He never fails to make me laugh when we go out for ice cream or lunch. It’s moments like these that remind me how lucky I am to have a friend as remarkable as Jacob.

Every day my goal is to create an environment that is fun, inclusive, and fulfilling for every child. There is nothing more powerful than working to place a smile on a child’s face.
