Befriend’s Continuum of Compassion
Befriend connects people of all ages, races, faiths, genders, education levels and diverse backgrounds to explore the ways in which they are more alike than different. The realization comes as they share their stories, learn from one another, support one another with kindness and patience and grow together. No matter where you are in your life, you can join the movement to make positive change in a world that wants to be healed.

CONNECT & UNDERSTAND
Everyone belongs. That simple statement lies at the heart of a society where connections foster understanding and fuel change. Befriend creates and nurtures opportunities for all to contribute to the common good. Join us!
1-on-1 or in a group setting, these gatherings are the perfect way to meet someone new. We can schedule one just for you and a soon-to-be friend…
Our Befriend Gatherings are scheduled events where a group gets together for conversation, to learn a new skill or work on a common goal…
Sometimes, we just need to hear from a friend. These small, text-based groups share photos, messages of inspiration and encouragement…
Meaningful, sustained change can happen with just a small step. There are so many ways each and everyone of us can contribute to positive change – for individuals, for communities and for the world. Be part of the movement and join us in all or any of these actions for change.
It takes less than a minute to smile at someone on the street, or buy a cup of coffee for the customer behind you in line. Thank someone using their name. These may seem small, but any act of compassion can change someone’s entire day.
Spread the word to family and friends about the Befriend movement. Share your story about what you are doing, what it means to you, what you’ve learned and invite them to join you.
From clean-up days at a housing project, letter-writing campaigns or local events, we have lots of one-time opportunities to get into the community, meet neighbors and soon-to-be friends all who share your passion for making the world a better place.
Learning from one another is a great way to get to know one another. Share your passion – whether its nutrition, fitness, meditation.
Is there an issue you are interested in learning more about – especially how you can help? Join with others to get the information, insight and tools for advocating ways to address systemic issues.
We run a lean organization but there are always costs. Any amount you can give will be put to immediate use for programs – not overhead.
