Volunteer with Franziska Racker Centers'

Friendship Network



The Friendship Network presents a unique opportunity to volunteer in  your local community by doing what you love and meeting new people along the way.

Our primary goal is to support people with developmental disabilities and their families, as they embark on a journey to build relationships.

Individuals with disabilities, like many of us these days, often face isolation. they have the same hopes, dreams, interests and talents. It is not easy for individuals with different abilities to feel included in their community, in activities and to meet new friends. You can help us tear down these barriers.


How you can become involved

As a volunteer, you tell us your interests, passions or skills that you'd like to share. We then introduce you to an individual that has some of the same interests.

Enjoy photography?
