At ASA Now, we believe some of the best support an adoptive, foster, or kinship care parent can receive is from another parent. We believe that one of the most important things you can do is to have access to ongoing supports for your family.
Join us for this bi-weekly Peer-to-Peer In Person Support Group allowing kinship, foster and foster/adoptive parents to provide knowledge, experience, emotional, social and practical support to one another.
Support Group Gathering will give you an opportunity to meet and interact with other families who face the unique challenges of raising children with trauma, loss and who have had child welfare involvement. We are here to provide support and resources to help meet the emotional, behavioral or medical needs of children who have experienced foster care.
Workshops will begin at 7 pm, followed by support group at 8 pm.
This event will be held at Jacob's Mission Community Center, 7830 E. University Dr. Mesa, AZ 85207 (Sossaman and University).
Workshops and support group may be offered virtually as well as on a case-by-case basis. If you need to attend this event virtually, please call 623-428-1592 after registering to make arrangements.
No kids over 12 months old due to sensitive topics that may arise
Please bring a snack or drink to share and we hope to see many of you there!
