OUR STORY

Score A Friend was founded in 2012 by, Sarah Greichen, a 13-year-old girl in pursuit of her Girl Scout Gold Award. Sarah’s twin brother, Jacob, has an Autism Spectrum Disorder and his lack of inclusion in their schools and community left him isolated and without friendship or purpose. Sarah’s original project goal was to find Jacob a friend. This experience led her to create Score A Friend, a nonprofit organization dedicated to building inclusive schools and communities.
