Whew! What a week for our community. This week members of our steering committee met with FASD educator Jeff Noble to talk about advocating for system change, building support teams and the Parents Helping Parents Ontario FASD Network. That’s us! 🙂 If you want to listen and learn more about the work we do, click on the link below.
Welcome! It can feel like a big first step to reach out for support. This is something we at Parents Helping Parents really understand. While we aren’t a crisis line, we are parents and caregivers with lived experience who know how isolating and frustrating it can be. We also know the joys and moments where you want the world to know just how proud you are of the person you support with FASD. We understand it all and are here for you, whether that’s a supportive chat with sharing of our own experiences and suggestions, or cheering you on from afar. Our big goal is that no one caring for a child, youth or adult with FASD, feels alone.
Over the coming week we will share a bit more about our parent mentors. They are people just like you and me, who have walked a similar path. We’ll also share more about our program. In the meantime we wanted to take this opportunity to say a big welcome, and let you know how pleased we are that you found us.
