Mission Statement

Founded in 2004, Friendship Circle of Miami is a volunteer-driven,  501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to offering friendship and acceptance to individuals with special needs, providing respite to their families, and empowering teenagers to make a difference through volunteerism.

We are committed to imparting renewed strength, comfort and peace of mind to the parents of exceptional children while simultaneously heightening the community’s awareness, sensitivity and sense of responsibility to individuals with special needs.

We are preparing the next generation of leaders through our volunteer program for a life-long committment to service and advocacy. 


Our vision is a community where people with special needs are included in every aspect, and they are provided with the supports and opportunities to be successful and live happy, productive lives.
