HOW IS YOUR CELL UNIQUE?

Friends for Life provides volunteers with the opportunity to create lasting friendships with the largely overlooked population of adults with special needs in the Waco community.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE EXPERIENCE AT THIS CELL?

By far, my favorite experience has been learning more about the members of Friends for Life in our weekly one-on-one conversations. Over the past 3 years,I have built meaningful friendships with a number of the FFL members, and look forward to seeing them on a weekly basis.

WHAT ARE SOME SPECIFIC TASKS A VOLUNTEER COULD EXPECT AT THIS CELL?

Specific tasks of this cell include playing games such as Uno, dancing, and conversing with the members of Friends for Life. On nice days, we even go outside and hang out at the playground with swings and rocking chairs.
