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.

Special Tax News – December 2014
On December 16th, the Senate passed a tax bill. One of the provisions of the bill is to allow people over 70 ½ to make a tax free distribution from their IRA accounts to 501(c)3 charitable organizations. Unfortunately, this provision of the tax code will expire on December 31, 2014.
If you are eligible to take this opportunity, we urge you to make a contribution to Friendship Home’s Annual Fund to support vital services for people with developmental disabilities and their families.
