Mission: The Friendship Circle Miami is a non-profit, community based volunteer organization dedicated to offering friendship and acceptance to children with special needs regardless of their disability while empowering teenage volunteers by building their leadership skills as we foster the values of altruism and volunteerism.
Through the mission of the Friendship Circle we are committed to providing respite and imparting renewed strength, comfort and peace of mind to the parents of these special children while simultaneously heightening the community’s awareness, sensitivity and sense of responsibility to children with special needs, ultimately embracing them.
Programs: Electric Guitar, Children's Circle, Teen Scene, Soccer Circle, Basketball Circle, Baseball Circle, Cooking Circle, Parent Lectures, Family Fun Days, and much more!
I have worked with Friendship Circle as a music therapist for the past 2 years. It is a phenomenal program that benefits not only children and teens with special needs, but the volunteers and staff that work with these individuals as well. The programming that Friendship Circle provides is top notch - there are creative arts offerings by board-certified therapists, cooking classes, yoga, karate, and sports, all facilitated by highly trained and caring professionals. I highly recommend this program and am happy to spread the word about the fantastic work being done to benefit the lives of individuals with special needs.
