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?

  • Sponsor a Puppet

    One of the best parts of PeerPals.org is how we welcome new pals into the program. Please read more about it under Ways to Help. Thanks!

  • Welcoming new pals

    Since April 1st, 35 new families have joined PeerPals.org! While most of our new pals are from Long Island, we now have families in Hagerstown, MD and Annandale, VA. Our group play dates are all located on Long Island, but we do our best to match out of state families for individual play dates. If we get a group of at least 12 families in an area outside of Long Island, we will host a group play date near them.
  • 6th Annual Planting Seeds of Community Dinner

    Last Thursday night we held our 6th Annual Planting Seeds of Community Dinner honoring Chairman and Mrs. Joseph Mondello as our Community Champions. We had a record breaking 260 people join us to celebrate! Thanks to Lisa Ostuni for the beautiful introduction of your parents. I'd like to thank Jessica Toner and Vivian Maltempi for coming and sharing their experiences in our program so eloquently. A special thank you to Liz Lassus, who accepted our Volunteer of the Year award on behalf of her husband, Jim Lassus, who was honored posthumously. Thanks, too, to our volunteers for the evening: Christina Tosi, Brianna Candito, Sara Rochester, Sarah Welsh, Nicole Bryan and Kim Benson. Also, a shout out to our photographer, Jennifer Mercurio and our graphics guru, Amanda Rivera. The expertise of all of these ladies made the night extra special. Our organization thrives and grows because of the wonderful people we have come to know who embrace our mission of inclusion.
