    Valley Friendship Club is a local non-profit organization whose mission is to promote and provide safe, accessible social opportunities while fostering friendships.  The goal is to enhance community connections, empower club participants to strengthen important life skills, and create greater social independence.  The vision of the Valley Friendship Club is to create the opportunity for every person with a developmental and/or intellectual disability to build enduring friendships while enhancing the lives of all individuals involved: members, families, and volunteers!

    VFC provides no/low cost educational and social programming to promote health and wellness, artistic expression, life and social skill development and community connections.  They have a robust calendar with options throughout the day, most days of the week.  The membership is free for kids, teens and adults and the new space on Osgood is almost too good to be true, with office and storage space, a large gathering space, a connection room filled with games and couches, and access to a commercial kitchen for cooking events.

    Their open house will be held on August 20th from 11am-1:30pm at 6201 North Osgood Avenue in Stillwater,  and their annual fundraiser - Valley Friendship Club Funds for Friends - “An Evening at the Vineyard” will be held at 7 Vines Winery in Dellwood on October 2nd from 5-8:30 pm.  They would love to have you join them!
