Welcome! We're glad you're here.
 
You have probably found us because:
 
a) You're involved in a Friendship group,
b) You're thinking about becoming involved in a Friendship group, or
c) You're passionate about disability ministry and including all people, regardless of ability or disability, in the life of the Church.

This is our second blog in a series answering the question:  How do you befriend an individual with higher needs? The first blog encouraged you to assume that your friend, though seemingly unaware of his or her surroundings, is actually very aware.

Mentors encounter individuals with varying degrees of ability and disability throughout their time at Friendship Ministries. One question that we are often asked is this: how do I best befriend and mentor an individual with higher needs? No doubt this can be a challenge, but it is a worthy challenge to accept.
