Two cute kids who support PeerPals.org!

Welcome to PeerPals.org! 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?

  • 1st Teen Volunteer Night

    Thanks so much to our newest high school volunteers from Oyster Bay High School, St. Dominic's in Oyster Bay and Our Lady of Mercy in Syosset! We are excited to be able to offer 1:1 play dates, facilitated by our new volunteers, in our new sensory friendly play space. Schedules and sign ups will be coming soon...stay tuned!
  • Once Upon A Treetop

    A few months ago we held our first group play date at Once Upon A Treetop in Plainview. It has quickly become one of our most popular play date venues! It's an interactive city designed for imaginative play and has a giant climbing playground that's perfect for our pals. We are looking forward to many, many more play dates at Once Upon A Treetop!
  • 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.
