REACh sponsors support groups for families of children with special needs. Our support groups are designed to help families connect with other caregivers in similar situations. Families with children of all ages and abilities are welcome.
"The first time my husband and I came to a REACh meeting, we were kind of expecting the same-old-same-old for parents of disabled kids: Some “experts” who have no clue what we’ve been through telling us what we’re doing wrong and what we should do instead, or pointing us toward half-baked resources that usually lead to a frustrating tangle of useless dead-ends. But that didn’t happen at all. Instead, we found ourselves welcomed into a community of parents, all of whom had been through many of the exact same trials and tribulations in what had, until then, felt like a vast, lonely wasteland of parenting. Still, three years later, the Roseville monthly meeting is one of the highlights of every month, where we can both receive and offer support in this caring, uplifting community. We are comforted, inspired, motivated, and even educated every time. It’s like an energy drink for the soul. At REACh we’re finally among those who truly understand, and that is the best resource of all. Thank you Laraine and REACh!"
