Groups help communities heal in community

"Together we can help each other to improve”

Sara* was an overwhelmed mom of three when she joined our parent support group this fall. She was exhausted from juggling her child’s special needs, the teacher’s frustration, and her family’s insistence on authoritarian parenting. When she started attending the group, she said the only tool she had to deal with her daughter was to yell at her.

After a few weeks in the group, Sara said, “Sometimes you close yourself off and you say, it's only me and my child who are suffering from this problem, but I’ve found there are many parents who suffer the same thing, and together we can help each other to improve.”

We’ve found time and time again that in such support groups, parents like Sara learn about their children and build crucial heart skills to help them and their children through difficult times.

In 2022, we offered 10 ongoing groups to over 425 people. But in 2023, we need your help to keep growing our groups program to support even more families. The dedicated grant funding for many of our parent support groups ends on December 31 and so we need your help to continue helping Sara and many other parents and caregivers who have children with special needs.
