Friendship Circle

Friendship Circle Friendship Circle is a non-profit organization that provides programs and support to families of individuals with special needs. Capital Region Friendship Circle brings together teenagers from the entire community to volunteer on a regular basis and befriend a child with special needs.

The children benefit from an evening of recreational interaction at Sunday Circle or Friends at Home and our teen volunteers increase in their sensitivity, assume responsibility, and recognize that they too can make a lasting contribution to a better society. The true beauty of the Friendship Circle is how we all link together to form a seamless circle of friendship. The Friendship Circle is made

So glad to have been a part!
Was truly amazing!

In honor of Lag B’omer, a festive Jewish holiday centered around celebrating love and unity, more than 30 volunteers from The Friendship Circle and the Chabad of the Capital District yesterday participated in a car parade up New Scotland Avenue to salute health care workers, especially those on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic. The car parade was accompanied by vehicles from the Albany Police and Fire departments. Rabbi Mendy Mathless presented Father Joseph F. Mali, BCC, staff interfaith chaplain at Albany Med, with a basket containing inspirational messages from children at Maimonides Hebrew Day School. Thanks to The Friendship Circle and the Chabad of the Capital District for the wonderful parade!

Thanks to Chaya Rubin, Friendship Circle for the beautiful flowers!
Mostly focused on Gabe and Casey but I know they had fun :)
They facilitate friendships between typical kids and kids with challenges. It’s a great gift to both.
Hi all if you are going to the Mom's night out on the 27th, please either message me through facebook with any questions you might have for our speakers. We want to have a head start and get as many questions answered. Hope to see a lot of you on Sunday.
