The Friendship Circle Miami is a non-profit, community based volunteer organization dedicated to offering friendship and acceptance to children, teens, and young adults with special needs regardless of their disability while empowering teenage and young adult volunteers by building their leadership skills as we foster the values of altruism and volunteerism.
Through the mission of the Friendship Circle Miami 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 individuals with special needs, ultimately embracing them.
