Connect with Parents
A strong community is important for raising children anywhere, but with children with special needs it is crucial. It helps to know that others are facing, or have faced, similar challenges. Many of the waters you are navigating have been navigated by others. With our kids spread throughout the county, it is difficult to find and connect with other parents.
That's why we created our Connections programs for parents. Once a month we gather in a home setting to share coffee and conversation. This is an unmoderated gathering, and the conversation entirely depends on what our parents bring with them. Concerns, questions, joys, challenges, tears, laughter - all can be shared. Often, solutions and suggestions provide life-lines. Always, a burden is lightest when shared with others.
