bEfriend is a relational model of ministry for typical adults and adults experiencing disability which includes 1-1 pairing in friendships. 

A Night of Friendship

bEfriend is a place where adults with and without disability gather with the sole purpose of building community, establishing new friendships, and hanging out as adult friends. bEfriend Communities host monthly gatherings where adults experiencing disability and typically developing adults come together to share a meal, share their lives, play games, and simply do things adults like to do.

From these gatherings, the model seeks to establish 1-1 pairings in friendship for adults who connect and enjoy one another. bEfriend encourages adults and without disability to enter into mutual and meaningful friendships and build a strong community that will benefit all involved.
