The photo was made possible by The Friendship Circle — a non-profit organization that pairs teenagers with children with special needs for weekly visits. Volunteers Brooke Taback and Emily Friedman were matched with Sarah last year. For Sarah, the hour they spend together each Friday has been life-changing...

LifeTown will take shape at the site of the Friendship Circle’s current home, much expanded and enhanced...
