Warm Up At One of Our Winter Parent Networking 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.

Between back to school time, winter weather and the holidays, families of children with special health needs can feel very isolated. Peer support improves our well-being and helps us feel more confident. Find a group that works for you and join other parents who "get it".
