Building friendships can be challenging.  [email protected] supports building friendships through a unique "at home" platform.  Meeting children and teens with disabilities at their home, there is a sense of comfort and tons of activities that they can enjoy with friends.

Matchmaking

Through a thoughtful pairing process, we identify teens with similar hobbies and interests.  We guide the initial introduction and first meetings helping to create a bond that pairs can then foster independently. Together, they can play games, make crafts, play sports, read books, and enjoy activities they like.  

Support

We continue to support these friendships with different DIY activities, periodic programs and regular check-ins.  We help families communicate, establish clear plans, and support difficult transitions. 

Impact 

[email protected] just makes me happy. I am involved in many aspects of FC, but [email protected] is the most personal of my experiences. I will always want Hailey in my life and look forward to continuing the friendship. I’m the youngest in my family so she feels like a younger sister to me. I genuinely love her!” -Dani, Teen Volunteer
