About Circle of Friends

Ozaukee County Circle of Friends, Inc. is a tax-exempt nonprofit group that provides recreational, social and educational activities for special needs children or young adults who reside in Ozaukee County. In addition to the individual with special needs, the circle includes their family, relatives and neighbors. Our activities are chosen and adapted to allow almost everyone to participate, regardless of age or ability.

The program offers:

  • the opportunity for individuals with special needs and their families to participate more fully in local recreational and educational activities
  • the ability to socialize in a supportive environment with other families of special needs children
  • the opportunity for individuals with and without disabilities to learn more about each other, socialize and have fun together

Who can Participate

  • any Ozaukee county resident with special needs
  • family members, relatives, friends and neighbors
  • community participants who do not have a special needs child, so that the children can interact together in a fun setting

Swimming, roller skating, bowling, horseback riding, picnics, boat excursions, parties, circus shows, ice shows, magic shows, concerts, plays, dances, gymnastics, pottery painting, sporting events, nature centers.


There is no membership fee to belong to Circle of Friends. We charge small activity fees for most events. Thanks to our generous donors, we are able to keep our events affordable so the entire family can participate. Fees may be waived on a case-by-case basis.
