Two cute kids who support!

Welcome to! We are an organization dedicated to helping preschool age children with disabilities become part of their communities, one friendship at a time. Won't you join us?

  • Happy 2017!

    Happy New Year! I can't believe I haven't posted since early November...especially since there's so much to share! First, a HUGE thank you to the U.S. Marine Corps Toys for Tots program for the generous donation of a sensory play area in our office! With the addition of all the sensory friendly toys we will now be able to host individual play dates for our pals in our new play space. A special thank you to SSgt. Quinton and Major Kilbride for all the time and attention spent on our project. I also want to thank Girl Scout Troop 211 from Oyster Bay for coming into the office to help pack and send welcome packages to our newest families. The girls did an amazing job and I was so happy to have them here. The troop is also donating a portion of their cookie sales to our program. We are so grateful that they have chosen to support our mission of inclusion for children with disabilities. We have 31 group play dates on our 2017 calendar and that number is growing! Be sure to check out our EVENTS tab for upcoming play dates.
  • Our volunteers from FREE

    Thanks so much to our volunteers from FREE (Family Residences and Essential Enterprises), for their help in our office last Thursday! They helped to pack puppets to welcome our newest pals into our program and pack Play Dates in a Box for our latest matches. Lauren, Joe, Brian and Michael did a fantastic job and we look forward to their help again.
  • Feedback makes me happy!

    As part of our matching program for inclusive play dates, we enclose a feedback postcard when a match is made. The last couple of postcards we received have had such positive feedback and the families really seem to have hit it off. It makes me so happy when the match and subsequent play date are successful. So happy that I want everyone waiting for a match to have a pal as soon as possible! With that goal in mind, I'm asking all of you to share with your friends, families, PTAs, SEPTAs, school principals, EI providers, and anyone else you know that may have a child ages 2-5. Please help us find a friend for all of our waiting pals!
  • Lots of Pals

    While October 2016 is not quite over, it is already one for the record books! This month we have welcome 26 new pals into our program. I love when we meet new families!
