Mr & Mrs. Lindsay & James

The Sulzers connected with Friendship Circle when they moved back to Cleveland to be near family after their daughter Liviana suffered a debilitating accident. Livie benefits from weekly visits by teen friend-makers as part of the Friends @ Home program and community holiday events. 

As we recognize Livie’s parents’ fortitude, dedication and positivity towards Friendship Circle, we also celebrate Livie’s inspiring strides in overcoming her injuries.

Mr & Mrs. Barbara & Ira

Barbara and Ira embody the values of Friendship Circle. Reflected in the three Taub girls, each became friend-makers at age 13. Leora, a psychology major at Stern College, Daniella, a senior at Fuchs Mizrachi School, and Shani, an 8th grader at Fuchs Mizrachi, all put their hearts into brightening children’s lives. The girls have gained skills in creativity, sensitivity, and leadership while gaining a sense of community through friendship.
