Support Group

When a child or other family member is diagnosed with a chronic illness or disability, it changes the family dynamics, and most people are completely unprepared to take on this enormous task.  They may find themselves dealing with the pain of an unexpected grief process and, often, an added financial strain as well.  Within this parent-to-parent directed forum for caregivers of individuals with disabilities, parents/caregivers share their experiences and draw strength from each other.  During these forums, we also provide counseling for family members/caregivers to help them respect these children and adults for who they are.
