Online Support Groups

Our online support groups give parents a place to connect through Facebook. All groups offer the opportunity to share experiences, socialize, and build friendships.

All groups are private, require commitments by members to respect confidentiality, and are facilitated by one or more of our Family Support Workers. This ensures that the group stays focused and that confidentiality is respected by all.
