Circle of Friends of Connecticut

UPDATED: August 10, 2020

Circle of Friends is a volunteer organization that reaches out to children, teens and young adults with austism & special needs and involves them in a full array of inclusive, social experiences. Our innovative programming of home visits, play dates and social interactions, is designed to foster a relationship between children, teens and young adults with autism & special needs and community teenage volunteers.
In addition to helping families in need, Circle of Friends empowers and enriches its network of volunteers (the majority of whom are teenagers) by enabling them to reap the vast rewards of participating in a program that strengthens their personal connections to the community by giving back to the community.
