What is MVP

At MVP you will learn how you can have a unique impact on others and the life skills needed to get along with people you will meet in your life. We will about the things that connect us. We will learn about the world of disabilities, the challenges and the triumphs. We will discuss all about giving back, the positive and personal results of giving.

What is Friendship Circle?

Friendship Circle is based on the bedrock foundation of Judaism, V'ohahvta l'Reyacha Kamocha, To love your fellow as you love yourself. Freindship Circle brings together children, teens, and young adults, with and without special needs, for hours of fun and friendship. These shared experiences, including a variety of Judaic and social programming, are a chance to develop meaningful and mutually rewarding relationships in a caring and supportive environment.

Why is our program unique?

While many organizations address the challenges of children with special needs, most are focused on goal-oriented therapeutic care. The Friendship Circle brings another dimension in that it offers unconditional love and friendship. By having this love flow from the youthful spirit of well guided teenagers, its effectiveness has proven to be remarkable.
