About the Group

We welcome parents/grandparents/caregivers of persons with special needs. We  provide you with a channel to connect to other parents and form a network of resources, ideas and insight. We are here to share with and learn from each other. We are also here to encourage each other. We want you to know the word “HOPE.”
