ORGANIZATION DESCRIPTION

Friendship Circle provides Jewish children and young adults with special needs with a full range of social, recreational, educational, and Judaic experiences including Sunday Hebrew School, weekly playdates, and holiday programs. With reduced options for childcare and schooling, particularly for children with disabilities, families rely on Friendship Circle’s services.

GRANT PURPOSE

To mitigate the economic hardship resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic and to help them achieve long-term organizational sustainability.

We are thrilled and so grateful to be a COVID-19 grant recipient. The funds will help us meet the challenges ahead as we continue to provide ongoing support and vital programs to the Jewish special needs population we serve during the pandemic.

Rabbi Michy Rav-Noy, MA S.P.E.D.
