Special Angels Group * Partnering with Palisades Family Success Center
(For caregivers who have youth on the spectrum)

The goal for this support group is for caregivers to become aware and educated about the system of care and about the available resources within their own community. We offer support and guidance in a family-oriented environment. Special Angels is designed to enhance its counterpart youth participation program. 
While the caregiver participates in our support group, their youth will be engaged in an all-volunteer facilitated group, where they will craft, socialize, learn and, most importantly, feel at home.

Group Meets the first Thursday of every month at 5:30pm
