The BFF Project

0 Comment

If you are 18 or older, this unique program from Parents Helping Parents may be an opportunity for you!

The BFF Project promotes friendship and social network building. Connecting in a meaningful way to others is important for anyone. Connecting is sometimes more difficult for individuals with developmental disabilities (like autism and Down syndrome) and other medical conditions (like anxiety and depression). The BFF Project gives participants an opportunity to increase their social relationships and friendships in a relaxed, person-centered, and non-stressful manner. It’s focused on FUN!

All BFF Project events are currently held on Zoom and held the 1st Wednesday of each month, from 6:45-8 PM.

Expect a warm welcome from your first log-in! We start with quick introductions and a question of the day to break the ice. Afterward, there are breakout rooms to choose from. Each breakout room has a different theme which are participant-chosen topics (like Disney characters, cooking, painting, dating, and more) and lasts about 30 minutes. The BFF Project events end with a group goodbye!

During The BFF Project events, dedicated volunteers are present to support participants and to facilitate interaction with the group. Parents and supporters are welcome to join participants at events but do not actively participate. If your participant is only able to be at ease with you at their side, we welcome you to join as well! Otherwise, we ask supporters to remain nearby and be available during the event.
