Overview

Self-reported by organization

Like any other teenager, young adults with disabilities want to study, work, play and volunteer in their communities. The Highland Friendship Club helps young adults with disabilities become active members in their community by providing social and recreational activities where they can learn and practice important social and life skills with their peers and others from the community.  HFC partners with other local organizations to provide 10-15 low cost activities per week including music, art and fitness classes and drop-in social activities. Young adult volunteers and staff provide support and assistance and HFC members are involved in planning the wide variety of activities provided by HFC.

Funding Needs

The Highland Friendship Club (HFC) relies upon donations from individuals and corporations to sustain our year round programming for young adults with disabilities.  More than 50% of HFC funding is from donations made by individual donors and local businesses.  HFC has started a sustaining member program to increase the number of donations made monthly to support activities.   A $100 donation provides funds to provide one Friday Fun Night, a $1200 donation provides 3 months of Friday Fun Nights.  Any donation supports young adults with disabilities.
