Caregiver Support Groups

Connect with other parents and caregivers on this Autism journey! Share your challenges, successes and gain support. Each group is led by the parent of a child with Autism. Join us at one or all of our groups!

We have multiple parent and caregiver support groups, including a group just for Dads! Parents of children of all ages are welcome, as we can learn from each other’s experiences.  Diagnosis is not required. Dual diagnosis families are welcome to attend. Let’s connect to support and friendship!

Our support groups are sponsored by a grant received from the Arizona Coyotes Foundation.

Help for parents and caregivers of Autistic children.
Story by Cronkite News

The Caregiver Support Groups were created as a way for parents and caregivers of a loved one with Autism to gather and connect with others going through similar situations in life and be a support and a resource to bounce ideas off of, share successes with, ask questions, and be there when times are tough. There is no speaker, just a time to chat and share in this journey with others that get it. Parents are welcome to bring their children since this is just a casual meet up. Feel free to come and go as needed.
