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?

  • Thanks for the birthday wishes!

    July 18, 2016, was the 8th birthday of To celebrate, we asked our donors, pals and volunteers to share our mission with their family and friends. Thanks so much to those who did! When you share our mission, you help us get one step closer to the reality of inclusive communities for children with disabilities. This past year was a year of tremendous growth for us. We served more families than ever and moved into our own office space in downtown Oyster Bay. If you're ever in the area, please stop by to say hello.
  • Now THAT’S a lot of puppets!

    Thanks to the generosity of the family and friends of Jim Lassus, who donated money in his memory in celebration of his birthday, 105 new pals will receive a welcome puppet in Jim's honor. We here at decided to welcome children into our program with a puppet, so they would have a puppet friend while they are waiting to be matched with a pal. Our puppet is a chef because we are "cooking up friendships". Special thanks to Jim's wife, Liz, who chose to celebrate his birthday in this special way.
