Are The Family You Choose
We've Got Friends (WGF) is a program that provides hangouts for teens with special needs. It's a simple idea that has an enormous impact on the children and families who participate. Most teens with special needs do not have a social circle; they have few friends and rarely get invited to parties or social gatherings in contrast to their peers. This program helps these teens develop their very own social groups through music, meals, movement, crafts, dance and more. WGF is currently raising money to underwrite the costs to run groups and continue providing services to families throughout New Jersey for FREE.

"We've got friends, oh yes we do..."
Tracy Ullman, Parent
Just having a friend is so important for teens with special needs. Once kids can hang out on their own, teens with special needs tend to be at home with no friends around and nothing to do. There are programs that provide sports and targeted activities but nothing where teens with special needs can just hang out relax and socialize like their typical peers. Creating this environment is what "We've Got Friends" is all about.
