5: Community Resources
It definitely takes a village to raise a child, and for children with special needs, the village typically includes a number of agencies and organizations. Tonight we will introduce you to groups who can provide assistance to individuals with disabilities and their families. Each group will share how they are funded, who their target audience is, their key programs, how to get support, and whether there is any cost for their services.
REMINDER: You can access a comprehensive list of related organizations on the Welcome to HollandTown class page.
