GROWING. FLOURISHING. ACHIEVING.
At Friendship Community, these words define our goals for Individuals and Team Members alike.
Founded in 1972, through the efforts of concerned parents and a local church group, Friendship has the distinction of opening Lancaster County’s first group home for adults with disabilities. Now marking our 43rd Anniversary, today Friendship is “Impacting the World with Capabilities.” In fact, this is our Vision Statement:
Impacting the World with Capabilities
Friendship Community is a Christian ministry cultivating capabilities of Individuals with developmental disabilities.
From the formation of Lancaster County’s first group home for adults with disabilities in 1972, Friendship Community has evolved from serving 12 people to over 150. Friendship Community provides residential and support services for Individuals and their families who desire a Christian program. Activities are planned to provide stimulation for the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of each person. As a faith-based organization, a Christian lifestyle is encouraged for both Individuals and Team Members at Friendship Community. All walks of faith are welcomed.
