Every member of our community deserves to share the joys of our Jewish experience. The Friendship Circle extends a helping hand to families who have children with special needs and involves them in a full range of Jewish and social experiences.
What is the Friendship Circle?

Together We can Perform Miracles

The Friendship Circle of Wake County was founded on the idea that within each person is a soul, regardless of any limitations that may surround it, regardless of whatever natural gifts we may have or lack, regardless of what obstacles and challenges we may confront, our souls are sacred and worthy of boundless love.

The Friendship Circle touches so many...

The child with special needs looks forward to weekly visits from his or her teenage friends.

The teenage volunteer learns the value of giving, and cherishes the experience of making a difference in a child’s life.

The child’s family gets a needed respite, and the pleasure of seeing their child become part of the community circle.
