Friendship Circle of Miami
Children with special needs face many challenges, among them isolation and lack of
relationships. They could have the best professional help, but they don’t necessarily have friends, don’t attend regular social gatherings like most, and their classmates can’t
interact with them in the same way as most children.
For the past 15 years, Friendship Circle has been bridging this gap through inclusive
programs that help children with special needs develop friendships through sports,
music, life skills training, summer- and winter- camp, yoga, equine therapy, and other
Friendship Circle of Miami is a nonsectarian, community-based 501(c)(3) non-profit that
creates friendship and develops life skills for individuals with special needs through
teenage volunteers and community outreach.
