The purpose of our Special Needs Buddy program is to facilitate inclusion in all NextGen programming.  We believe every individual has been created by God and can know Him. For those with special physical or mental challenges who need individual assistance in order to fully participate, every effort is made to connect them with a Buddy who will assist him or her during programming. This is a deliberate process, taking into consideration the special needs as well as the concerns of the parents in order to make the best Buddy match. Due to this process, it may be necessary for a family to wait until just the right volunteer is found.

If you are interested in a Buddy, call our office at 757.496.5700 or email our team at
