The mission of the Bucks County Family Friends program is to foster nurturing relationships whereby older adult volunteers provide companionship, respite and support to children with special needs and their families.
You can work your entire life and wonder whether you've made a difference. Bucks County Family Friends make a difference in just a few hours a week. If you want to feel fulfilled, gain a new perspective on life, and open your heart to new relationships, please join us.
Share Your Skills:
People of any age can apply their experience and skills to Family Friends in many different ways: joining an advisory council, gathering resource materials, raising funds or recruiting participants. Skilled program staffs match individuals' talents, interests, and availability with a role that fits. Family Friends receive startup and ongoing training, support from experienced staff, recognition, liability insurance, and the chance to interact with like-minded, caring and committed people. Persons may participate individually or on a team. Schedules are flexible to meet everyone's needs.
Monthly In-Service meetings held at the Bucks County Intermediate unit on the 4th Tuesday of the month at 10a.m.
