Play canasta, pinochle and mahjong, practice better balance, ballroom dancing and yoga, try your talent at woodcarving or quilting, all at our Venice Friendship Center.
Are you exhausted from caring for a family member with cognitive or medical challenges? We can offer a nurturing day program for your loved one and support for you.
Are you over 50, uninsured or on a limited income? Our volunteer doctors, dentists and specialists in Sarasota, Lee and Collier Counties can return you to good health.
If you are looking for a festive way to help raise money for the Friendship Centers, you may want to attend or sponsor one of our fundraising events throughout the year.
