For all new families interested in joining Friendship Circle there is a three step process to get started. Depending on the time of year you are completing this registration, it may take us 2-3 weeks to process your intake forms. If you already had an intake meeting, please contact our office to register for specific programs and events.
Step One: Register for an Intake Meeting
Friendship Circle requires that all new families participate in an intake meeting before their child participates in programs. You will meet with a family coordinator to discuss the programs that are available for your child. The intake is also a good time to ask any questions or share any concerns you may have. Intake Meetings are generally held once a week.
Step Two: Registration for Programs
Once you have participated in an intake meeting you can now register your child for programs. You will receive an email asking you to complete a comprehensive registration form. Please set aside 20 minutes to fill out this form as there is quite a bit of detailed information that we will need from you (health & medical information, liability waivers etc.).
Step Three: Pairing of Volunteers
Once your registration has been accepted our volunteer coordinators will work on pairing an appropriate volunteer with your child. Please note: Friends at Home matches are only set up at the beginning of the year.
