Familias Unidas con Niños con Necesidades Especiales (FUNNE)
FUNNE offers monthly support group and educational meetings in Spanish for families with children with special needs. As a collaborative effort of area providers and organizations, FUNNE offers families and caretakers of children who have a disability the tools they need to overcome the barriers they face in obtaining care and support for their loved ones. Education provides the foundation needed to understand and best handle their child’s needs. Program activities include group discussions, presentations by experts and providers on community resources, and social events. Child care is provided and children do fun educational activities while their parents meet. This program is made possible through grants from the Apostolate to Persons with Disabilities along with the support of many community partners.
All are welcome to attend but registration in advance is requested by contacting Lilliam Post at 608-441-3257.
