When you have a child who has a disability, special needs or any sort of different path from the typical experience, it can be hard to navigate alone.  Join our local Sonoma County Facebook group, subscribe to our emails to stay connected, learn about resources, and find a community of friends who get it. 

You are not alone.

Our Community

We believe strongly in community. It’s how we’re hard-wired as human beings, and we’ve found that as special needs parents that it’s a life-line. For the past couple years, we’ve been connecting families together who have children with varying diagnoses. While special needs parents share many of the same worries, hopes, fears, and ambitions for their children as parents of typically developing children do, the work we do is more. The road we travel is less forgiving. The uncertainties we face are innumerable. And having people alongside us who get it is invaluable.

We are currently hosting our meet ups outside, socially distanced following COVID safety guidelines. You can also stay connected virtually by joining our Facebook Group. Let’s continue to support and uplift one another through this extremely trying time.
