We are a group of parents and caregivers of children with disabilities, or special health care or learning needs who use mobility devices like wheelchairs, walkers, strollers, standers, canes, etc. We meet at Noon on the last Thursday of the month. No meetings on holidays or in June and December.
Parenting is stressful for everyone and parenting a child with special needs is unique and can be isolating.
Come to join us for some virtual conversation and learning with parents who get it.
This group is about community, support, laughter, sharing resources, and just having a safe place to talk about whatever is on your mind.
