Helping Outcomes for Parents of Exceptional Children

 

Mission

 
   

These events are events that can be completed in a few hours. They provide a relaxing time and then allows the parents to get back to their daily responsibilities.

Future funding coming soon… Promoting couple time creates healthier relationships which in turn will promote the progression of the individual with disability to meet individual goals and overal life satisfaction.

Seminars and Workshops
Many times parents are told what their child’s diagnosis is whether Cerebral Palsy or Autism it is important to understand what that means for their child. The expectation will be that HOPE can provide the funding for these parents to get a better understanding of the disability and be able to ask professional’s questions that are unclear or that they have previously been too scared to ask.

Conferences
Conferences provide information on the newest technology, support devices, equipments and a support system. Parents will come in contact with leaders in the disability community and have a chance to tell their story and get tips to support their individual better. Conferences also give parents some time together to focus on each other while becoming well informed parents.

Hotel
stay with-in city. Money situations are really tight for many families who have children with disabilities. Parents need a chance to engage in romantic settings to relieve stress and to focus on each other while their individual is being supported. This stay with-in the city will allow the parents to be away from home but not have the anxiety of being out of reach if their child was to need them.

§ Massage (Couples). Day spa treatments would provide parents with opportunities to relieve stress together before having to deal with the day to day pressures and stressors of having a child with a developmental disability.
