The Friendship Circle Mission

The Friendship Circle
Mission Statement

The Friendship Circle of Pittsburgh was established in 2006 with the intention of creating a more inclusive community. Our programs engage youth and adults with diverse abilities in a full range of social activities; we aim to enrich the lives of all participants through mutually advantageous interactions, creating lasting friendships that strengthen both the Jewish and greater communities.

 

The Friendship Circle is a community-based program that brings together people of diverse abilities and interests. At Friendship Circle, we believe all people have the same needs.  These needs include friendship, fun, opportunities to grow, the ability to contribute and to belong. Friendship Circle of Pittsburgh is devoted to addressing those needs in an accessible environment that provides any necessary supports to bring out the best in all of us.

 

As a FC Member, when you walk into Friendship Circle Pittsburgh, people are eager to see you and will always welcome you.

You may very well hear laughter from the game room. You may smell what is cooking in the kitchen as friends are prepping for a café night, Shabbat dinner, or a celebration. It is likely that you will see people expressing themselves in different ways while engaged in a full range of fun activities. You will feel a sense of community from people enjoying themselves as they work together to make Friendship Circle Pittsburgh a vibrant place where everyone can be themselves and find friendship, respect and fun.

Friendship Circle Custom Masks

The Friendship Circle of Pittsburgh has partnered with iKIPPAH to design custom face masks with clear panels that allow the mouth and more of the face to be seen. Available for purchase at $10, these Transparent Masks make lip reading possible and facial expressions better understood – and they come in a variety of cool colors and patterns. Now, you can express your individual personality and actually have fun wearing a face mask! Each mask has a Friendship Circle applique!
All proceeds benefit the Friendship Circle of Pittsburgh. The mask fundraiser is underwritten by Mark Tobias.
