Fall Parent Networking & Support Groups

One in Five Minnesota families with children have a child with a disability or chronic health condition. We do not have to feel alone.

We are pleased to be offering a variety of parent networking and support groups this fall. Groups are open to parents of children and youth with special health care needs or disabilities. Connect in a private, safe space to share understanding, support and resources. Get more information on these offerings on our website at www.familyvoicesofminnesota.org/parent-groups
