This is a group for people with disabilities who are parents.

Being a parent is stressful enough that adding an individuals’ unique challenges and barriers can be over whelming.THIS-ABILITY provides an opportunity to discuss shared experiences,successes and trials in a supportive environment. There’s nothing better than “sharing the load” with someone who knows exactly what you’re going through.

Join us to meet others, make new friends, find resources, and learn something new.
