“THE GATHERING” WELCOMES THE SPECIAL NEEDS COMMUNITY
The “Special Club” will meet on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at 7pm. hosted at the Presbyterian Community Church of Massapequa
(Massapequa, NY) — In an almost club-like environment, parents of local “special needs children and teenagers” are coming together, in an informal way, to share stories and offer support.
“Parents have ‘special needs,’ too,” says Stacie Armstrong, organizer of the group. “We all share a common bond, have common challenges and need to recognize that we’re not alone with facing the challenges to provide a satisfying life for our children without losing ourselves.”
“It’s an outreach to special needs families to provide a welcoming environment within the community” says Armstrong. “We’re looking forward to seeing the group expand and, eventually, divide into other groups devoted to various age ranges, as each experience different struggles as children grow older.”
Reservations are required so we can allocate our resources accordingly. For further information on this “Special Club” call Joan Tischner. There is no cost to join, but donations will be accepted to defray the cost of coffee and pastry.
