Becoming a Friend at Friendship House Fayetteville
The core members of Friendship House are the Friend Residents. Young adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities who, with the support of their families, housemates, and rehabilitation staff are prepared to maintain or seek a part-time job or significant volunteer opportunity in the community, care for themselves, be a friend to housemates, participate in the community life of Friendship House as best they can, and make an effort to develop their independent living skills. The rhythm of the community is Eat, Pray, Celebrate.
