We are preparing for our Ice Cream Socials and Camp YMCA Friendship. For more information see our Program Page.
Friendship Home’s mission is to enrich the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families by providing quality respite care and support services in a safe and caring environment. Our programs build self-esteem and community involvement for our participants, while providing support for their families who may become overwhelmed and isolated by the daily demands of caring for their family members. While our programs directly address the needs of individuals with developmental disabilities and their families, we are proud of our efforts to serve the entire community by raising up the people that we serve as vital contributors to our communities.
Ribbon cutting, June 2012 – our “Home with a Heart” is complete!
Like all new homeowners, we need many supplies. If you would like to help:
In 2010, Friendship Home opened the doors to the program and activity area of our state-of-the-art respite and retreat facility, the Home with a Heart. Since then, we have expanded our programs and increased our impact on existing members, while providing opportunities for others to participate in our programs and services. With our respite home complete in 2012, our Home with a Heart now signifies the culmination of many years of service, advocacy and fundraising undertaken by community members and families who manage the daily challenges of caring for individuals with developmental disabilities.
