MINNETRISTA, Minnesota — This pandemic has a lot of people feeling isolated and lonely.
Best Buddies Minnesota, a 501(c)(3) organization, is hoping to help people across the state forge unique friendships and build self-esteem while also staying safe and healthy.
One way that’s happening is the Citizen Program, which matches an adult with IDD (intellectual and developmental disabilities), in a one-on-one friendship with a peer without a disability.
