Families in Need

For many of us, raising our children with special needs introduces heavy financial pressures. As a support group, we strive to support our families with especially difficult circumstances. Each year, FRIENDS gifts families in need with gift cards for local restaurants, grocery stores, gas stations, and other local merchants. Often we visit families in hospitals as they sit bedside with their children so that they know they have a community of support.

Our unity will keep our community strong. Please consider donating to help our families with extra medical needs. Indicate that your contribution is for a particular family by noting their name in the “Add special instructions for the Recipient” section of the PayPal transaction. We are grateful for your support.

Lending Library

We have a number of books in our library that we loan out to our families. It’s our hope to provide a variety of resources since our members range in age and in special needs. If you have any suggestions for a book that you think might add value to our lending library, please let us know and we can add it to our collection.
Our collection includes:
