Friendship Connection

Friendship Connection (FC) promotes social connections and community inclusion for people with IDD through a range of cultural events and experiences.  FC participants engage in many facets of culture – from art, music, and literature, to food, sports, and pop culture.  Quarterly event calendars include such things as touring an art museum and discussing a work of art, making music in a drum circle, and hanging out together to watch a sporting event… just to name a few!

Who can join Friendship Connection?

FC is open to any adult who would like the opportunity to make new friends and become more involved in their community.  FC participants must behave appropriately and pay for individual event costs when applicable.  Participants must also be willing to get to know new people, try new things, and explore new parts of their community.

How can I join Friendship Connection?

We send a calendar to you once each quarter with upcoming events.  To stay connected with us, please download and complete the Enrollment Form.  After FC staff receive your enrollment form, you will be sent the current FC event calendar and remain on the mailing list for future quarterly event calendars.
