We've Got Friends


What We Do

We've Got Friends is a program that provides hangouts for teens with special needs. It's a simple idea that has an enormous impact on the children and families who participate. Most teens with special needs have no sort of social circle. They have few friends and rarely get invited to parties or hang out as their peers do. This program helps these teens develop their very own social group through music, meals, movement, crafts and dance.
We've Got Friends is currently raising money to build the foundation and staffing for our programs.
