Friendship Citizens Program Spreads Downstate
Several residents from Independence Community near Millsboro, Delaware came out in 2016 with a resolve to make the world a nicer place. Program Supervisor Anne Karwath and her husband Kevin (also paired with a Buddy), shared the mission of the organization at a community gathering and three people signed up on the spot in hopes of becoming matched with a Buddy.
“These new volunteers were drawn to the Best Buddies one-to-one friendship model as a volunteer activity that is meaningful and fun at the same time. The magic begins when I introduce the Buddy and Peer Buddy to each other. It’s been rewarding as a Program Supervisor to see the impact the new Buddies have on each other’s lives.” – Anne Karwath
New Pairs in Sussex County:

This coming year will be very exciting as the newly matched pairs become acquainted with each other and continue to grow in their friendship and spend time doing one-to-one activities and coming together as a small group. Welcome to the Best Buddies Family to all in Sussex County. We are so happy to have you as of our program!
