Programs that improve & transform lives

There are thousands of families in Alameda county who don’t know who to call for help. Some have bad experiences and don’t feel respected. Others are afraid because they’re not sure who they can trust. We’re different. We are all parents who have kids with special needs, too.

We offer group learning opportunities throughout the year:  Playgroups, IEP Clinics, Workshops, Support Groups, and community events.
