EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOPS
Each month we strive to help inform our community members about topics that are relevant to them. These workshops are aimed at helping adults, families, and children learn strategies for success as they connect with their peers.  Such topics include financial literacy, safety, preparing our children for the future, and much more!

 

 

SUPPORT GROUPS
Parenting is hard work! This can be especially true of caregivers to children with disabilities.  We provide a forum for parents to connect with each other as they learn to navigate the social, emotional, financial, and physical needs of children with disabilities.
