We celebrate your child AND support you, the foundation of your family. Parents in the Friendship Circle enjoy a regular respite needed to recharge and the pleasure of seeing their children become part of the community circle. Parents also come together in workshops and support groups based on their shared experience, empowering each other and developing a supportive community.
