    EPIC - Every Person Influences Children has expanded their online support for parents, as families everywhere continue to navigate consequences of the past four months.

    "Just because we've been doing this awhile, doesn't mean it's getting easier," says Tara N. Burgess, EPIC's Executive Director. "Parents are still navigating homeschooling, unemployment or trying to work from home, caring for their families and potentially dealing with health issues. They need as much support as possible, and that's what these cafés aim to do."






    Healthy Community Alliance now has a support group for adults who are caring for their grandchildren, nieces, nephews, etc!  The support group meetings will be on zoom until regular life resumes, then it will be held at the Healthy Community Alliance building in Gowanda.




    Parent Network of WNY offers family & caregiver groups that provide a welcoming environment for parents and other caregivers of young people with autism or developmental disabilities to meet, share experiences, ask questions, learn about available resources and receive support.
