(WTNH)– Friendship is something easy that everyone can offer but not everyone receives. Individuals with disabilities are often overlooked for friendship and can lead very lonely lives.
But the Best Buddies Citizens Program in Connecticut is a program where adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD) are paired in a one to one friendship with an adult without an IDD in their community!
Zach Zoccoli, from Best Buddies, joined us on CT Style with Peer Buddy Molly Fitzpatrick and Buddy Abby Meyer to talk about the program. These two young women have been recently matched and have been enjoying their time together by treating this just like any other friendship!
