Every Person Has Value

We are facilitating change in Lane County for children and youth with complex disabilities.

About Us

Our Mission

Circle of Friends was founded on one simple concept: children and youth with severe disabilities are just like anyone else – they deserve opportunities. Through resources, support, training, and a community built on compassion, we’re here to break the cycle of isolation for these individuals and the people who love them.

How You Can Help

Donations have made our programming possible. We are grateful for your continued support.

We can always use some helping hands. If you have time and love to spare, let us know.

Whether you have a child with complex disabilities or are an ally to the disability community, our community is open to you.


What People Say

Through their creativity and hearts for service, the CoF team has brought inclusion, friendship, community, and what seems to be an unlimited amount of energy to families across all walks of life. However, it is one particular attribute of this organization that we are eternally grateful for – and that is their ability to see our daughter for exactly who she is: the beautiful, unique, adventurous child who deserves the opportunity to grow, learn, and develop meaningful relationships.
