Parent to Parent Support
Through all of our years of supporting families, we have learned that often times the most effective expert is another parent who has experienced the same challenges that you are experiencing. Connecting with a parent who has that lived experience can be a source of hope and an opportunity to have questions answered that you may not have even thought to ask. The parents at the FREC, who once benefited from the guidance of other parents, understand the importance and complexity of providing meaningful, safe, and confidential support.

We also provide monthly support groups for families of children and adults with disabilities where individuals can share information, experiences, resources, build connections, and provide emotional support to each other. A few things to know about our support groups:
~They are FREE
~Unless otherwise stated, they are for parents, family members, and/or caregivers
~Group facilitators are generally volunteers who are parents of children with a disability or special health care needs
