If you already had an intake, please contact our office to register for specific programs and events.

Friendship Circle requires that all new families participate in a family interview before their child participates in programs. You will meet with a family coordinator who will give you a tour of our facility and discuss the programs that are available for your child. The interview is also a good time to ask any questions or share any concerns you may have. Interviews are generally held twice a week.

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.).

Pairing of

Once your registration has been accepted, our volunteer coordinators will work on pairing an appropriate volunteer with your child. Depending on the program selected and the time of year you have registered there may be a delay of 2-3 weeks before your child can participate in programs.

Below are our programs as well as resources provided by Friendship Circle of Michigan to help you with tools and community support along the way.
