We recognize that transitioning from one life stage to another can have unique challenges for our loved ones with special needs. The amount of planning and preparation can be overwhelming. But we also know that there are people in the Charlotte area that desire to help through providing educational, logistical, financial, and many other types of support. We are aiming to provide face-to-face opportunities for those who provide support to meet parents and caregivers who need resources.
