Our mission is a pretty big deal to us.

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.

We are a female-founded 501(c)(3) in Eugene, Oregon and we are motivated to bring change to Lane County. The youth we serve are deserving of visibility and opportunities, regardless of their abilities and medical needs. Let’s normalize differences through listening, learning, and including. Every person has value.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.

Our community is ready for you.
