The Friendship Circle Pittsburgh

The Friendship Circle unites teen volunteers with children who have special needs. Through a wide range of innovative programs and Jewish activities, they share fun and love, building a friendship that deeply enriches their lives.

"Our goal is to decrease the barriers that all too often exclude children who are different and keep them from enjoying social activities and friendship."
-Dr. Laura Marshak,
Friendship Circle Advisor
