THE POWER OF FRIENDSHIP

MAKES ALL THINGS POSSIBLE

VOLUNTEERDONATE

We are becoming a more neuro-diverse world. It is time for different populations, those with special needs and those that are typical, to come together to form one community of people. We provide programs and initiatives which will achieve that goal.

HOW WE CREATE FRIENDSHIPS

All of our programs are designed to deliver much needed services and opportunities to children and young adults with special needs
and their families while offering support and volunteer roles for young people looking to give back.

PROGRAMS

Through collaborative programs like Rock Dreams, Fit Friends, Art Works, Reading With Friends and Zen Friends Yoga we provide children and young adults with special needs with fun and meaningful activities.

INITIATIVES

Friendship Park
Students Taking Responsibility in Society (STARS)

COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Our student volunteer programs provide opportunities for children of all ages to make meaningful connections with their peers.

RESEARCHERS HAVE ESTIMATED
THAT AS OF 2017 MORE THAN
25% OF THE U.S. POPULATION,
ROUGHLY 83 MILLION PEOPLE
HAVE SPECIAL NEEDS.

FRIENDSHIP PARK

Working with the internationally acclaimed landscape architecture firm, EDSA, The Friendship Initiative has developed a concept and design for the nation’s first all-inclusive community park to be named Friendship Park.

Every element within this outdoor space, passive or active, can be shared side by side by both the special needs and typical populations. TFI is interested in partnering with a city that shares its vision of the way all community parks should be designed and built.
