In this edition of “Friend 2 Friend Friday” we introduce you to a Needham native looking for a match in the Community Program. Volunteer now.


At 24, Misha – who lives part-time with mom, part-time with dad in Needham – says the mall is her favorite. (Bring on the food court!) She’s a good dancer, a pretty competitive bowler. And she’s eager to share some lunch and conversation with a new Friend.

Misha, who is on the Autism spectrum, attends a day program. She’s been matched before but her last match ended some time ago and she’s been looking forward to a new one since. Her past experiences were so meaningful, in fact, that she remains in touch with past volunteers via e-mail.

Misha’s ideal Friend: Someone with a penchant for window-shopping and weekend availability!
