It’s important to know that you are not alone on your journey!
Parents Helping Parents offers many support groups. Each is a place to get information, reduce feelings of isolation, and meet others who understand your family because they share similar experiences. We also share information about support groups led by other agencies well-known in our community.
Key things to know about PHP’s support groups:
- All of our groups are FREE.
- Support Group leaders are knowledgeable volunteers who are parents of children with disabilities.
- Most meet monthly on Zoom.
- You may find more than one group that sounds interesting. Try them all to find the one(s) that are the most helpful for you and your family.
Support groups are only one of the ways to connect to information at Parents Helping Parents. If you live in the Bay Area, contact PHP directly and ask to speak with one of our resource specialists for 1:1 consultations about areas of interest to your family.
