This weekly program has teen volunteers spending quality time with children with special needs in the environment the kids are most comfortable in and familiar with: their own homes. The teens are guided and trained for their valuable role as friend and mentor. A unique bond is established between the volunteers and their friends. The range of activities shared can be anything from cookie-baking to arts & crafts, story-time to hide-and-seek and more.
These visits can be arranged to accommodate a wide variety of schedules.
To ensure maximum compatibility in matching teen to child, enrollment for the Friends at Home program requires an additional application form and questionnaire, as well as an interview with our staff.
