    Parent Connect

    Parent Connect is a parent-parent mentoring program, funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation. This program connects parents/caregivers of children (of any age) with suspected or diagnosed Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) or a complex neurodevelopmental disorder into mentor-mentee dyads. The purpose of this program is to connect parents/caregivers with similar lived experiences to decrease their experience of social isolation. The program is offered throughout Southwest Ontario yet participants are not required to travel to take part in the program.

    A Night Out is a safe, supportive, and stigma-free environment for parents/caregivers raising children and youth with FASD. Evenings include engaging discussions, learning opportunities, and a chance to relax while children and youth engage in safe, interactive, developmentally appropriate sensory programming. This group is possible through a partnership with LFCC, Humana Community Services, and Merrymount.
