The Friendship Circle, established in Pittsburgh’s Jewish Community in 2006, is dedicated to integrating children and young adults with special needs more fully into the broader community.
The program engages children and young adults with and without special needs in a full range of social activities. The Friendship Circle aims to enrich the lives of all participants through mutually advantageous interactions, creating lasting friendships, which consequently strengthen both the Jewish and greater community.
The Friendship Circle has made its home in the former Gullifty’s restaurant in Squirrel Hill, and is pursuing LEED-NC certification. This event will include a tour from Friendship Circle staff and the design/construction project team, and will conclude with happy hour on the site’s roof deck.
You can read about this project in the latest edition of Breaking Ground magazine.
5:30 – 6:30 – Tour led by building ownership and project team.
6:30 – 7:00 Networking happy hour on roof deck, additional questions and conversation.
