C.A.R.E. Parent Support
ASK believes that parents often find their greatest support in other parents who are in a similar situation. Sharing and learning from each other empowers parents.
The unique aspect of ASK support is that it involves a parent helping another parent. CARE program volunteers are mostly parents of children with various types of special needs, who are supportive in an effective manner, know the many resources in the community and are fully prepared to serve you in the best possible way we can.
We live your challenges, share your joys and your worries. We find great delight in small gains and recognize that what we see as great strides are not always seen by the world in which we live.

Thank you so much for all your time and sharing your special story. It is so great to talk to another mother who understands and speaks the same language.
’Indeed, ASK was at the beginning and continues to be extremely helpful through the great contacts I made. Thank you so much for all you have done for us. It is a wonderful organization’
“I realized we had formed a cohesive group with each person an integral member, each contributing and each taking something out of it.”
” Thanks again so much for hosting the ASK support evenings. It cannot be underestimated what it means for all these parents (mostly mothers, yes I know – why is it that dads are so good at delegating going to these meetings? mea culpa too, by the way…). Having a child with special needs can become a very lonely business in any country and to hear that other parents are dealing with similar issues is very helpful, even comforting up to a point. “
ASK has been such an important part in our lives, allowing my son to have a wonderful time in a perfect environment and allowing me as a parent to have time to keep doing my thing when school is out, with peace of mind. The dedication of all the staff involved is amazing.
