Friends At Home

Our Friends@Home program matches teenagers with children or younger teens with special needs for fun-filled weekly home visits. Teenagers complete an application process, provide letters of recommendation, and are interviewed before they are paired. Often, these visits become the highlight of the children’s week as they excitedly look forward to the time spent in fun activities with their teen friend. Parents report great success in building confidence, improved social skills and happier children.
Ages: 5 -15 Fees: Free
Session dates: During school terms ONLY for one school year
* A parent must be at home during Friends@Home visits

If you are a parent interested in taking part in this program, please request a Friends@Home. She will be in touch regarding an interview. Please complete the following documents in preparation for your meeting:
