About the event

Research reveals that parents of children with developmental disabilities often experience higher levels of chronic stress, anxiety, and depression compared to parents of neurotypical children. While support from the broader community can be helpful, there's nothing quite like the emotional connection forged with other parents navigating similar journeys. Empathy and sympathy from others are valuable, but true understanding comes from walking the same path.

That's why connecting with other parents who share similar experiences is essential. It's about finding your tribe, where you can feel understood without explanation. We all need that support system as we navigate the challenges and triumphs of raising children with developmental disabilities.

Making time for yourself is crucial, even if it's just an hour a week. Join us to meet other "seasoned" parents who can offer invaluable advice and support. Or simply sit with us, knowing that you're among those who just "get it."

No RSVP required. Just come as you are and find comfort in the company of your tribe.
