Best Buddies

Friends provide the support, encouragement and companionship that we all need. Many individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities experience feelings of isolation and disconnection and seek to develop friendships outside of their residences. To this end, SUS has partnered with Best Buddies New York, a volunteer effort that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships between people with intellectual/developmental disabilities and peers  in the corporate and civic communities.  Best Buddies speak at least weekly and meet monthly with the goal of establishing mutually enriching friendships.
