Verde Valley Special Needs Support Group

Thursday, 0/21 6:00p Verde Valley Special Needs Support Group: Our children have Downs syndrome, seizure disorder, feeding tubes, premature birth, deafness, autism spectrum disorder, spina bifida, the list goes on. I hated the hard surgeries for my son, but one mother wished her child had a condition that doctors could fix. I struggled with how to respond to strangers that point and stare, but another mother wanted her child's condition to be visibly obvious so strangers would understand why he wasn't doing what other 9-year-old boys did. It is powerful to simply congregate with other parents whose children have special needs, hear the variation in stories, see the experience refracted through the crystal of multiple identities. Because I've learned on this parenting journey, no one is behind me, no one is in front of me. I am exactly where I need to be with my child. A place where we all are students and we all are teachers.

Women's Support Group

Wednesdays, Weekly @6:00p-7:30p in the Key Lime Room: We live in a place where women's voices are often silenced.

A place to give and receive support for the many issues we struggle with as women such as self-esteem, identity, relationships, family, health and so much more. Rediscover your own voice and experience great healing and empowerment. Call 928-593-9528 for more information.
