Walk4Friendship Boca is an annual walk that raises crucial funds and community awareness for Friendship House and our mission of creating a more inclusive community for those with special needs!
We are excited for our 2024 walk, including our welcome ceremony and grand community carnival. Free and open to the public!
This year, we walk in memory of Noya Dan and Ruth Perez, two beautiful and full-of-life young girls with special needs who were tragically killed on October 7. Please join us in remembering Noya and Ruth of blessed memory.
WHO WE ARE Friendship House brings support, friendship, and connection to all individuals with special needs and those facing isolation. Our vision is a community where people with special needs are included in every aspect and are provided with the support and opportunities to be successful and live happy productive lives.
The Boca Raton community has a rapidly growing population of children with special needs. According to the CDC research reports for 2015-17, 17% of children aged 3-17 years had a developmental disability, and even more importantly, the percentage is increasing each year. This segment of our society is falling through the cracks and in tremendous need of resources and support. Without programs like Friendship House, children and youth with special needs often find themselves isolated from everyday activities and socialization opportunities, lack friends, and feel lonesome and forgotten. Friendship House is addressing this gap in services for individuals with special needs in the Boca Raton area. Friendship House simultaneously impacts multiple populations by pairing typical high school and community volunteers with children with special needs, creating a socially integrated environment where all can grow, develop, and thrive.
