What’s Happening at Home?

At Connection of Friends, we know our participants do many amazing activities and celebrate wonderful accomplishments outside of our program! As we continue to work on socialization skills, we would love to hear about any current or future special events or occasions so we can encourage participants to share their experiences with their friends at COF.
