Connect With Us

Here at FC we have made the transition to Virtual Programming to better serve our community and keep our friendships going during these difficult times. We have created a slew of new virtual programs from our Teen Tuesdays to our Young Adult Happy Hours to our Parent Support Groups. We have also revamped our original programs to fit the virtual model including Virtual Sunday Circle and Virtual Friends@Home. And lastly, we have teamed up with Friendship Circles all over the world to provide daily virtual content on a Facebook Group called FC Goes Virtual.

 

Over the summer, we will continue with our Young Adult Happy Hours and Older Parent Support Group. FC Goes Virtual and its associated Friendship Island Virtual Camp will continue throughout the summer as well. Stay tuned for announcements about our upcoming Fall programming.

Financial Help for YOU!

We have been awarded a grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia to provide emergency funding to help our Philly Friendship Circle families of children with disabilities who have been financially affected by the COVID19 pandemic. We are honored that the community has entrusted us as the partners to offer this support.
