Early this year in March of 2018 a committee of parents, special education teachers, social workers, and administrators got together and discussed that there need to be more support services for families of children with special needs. That conservation helped create Parents with a Purpose in DeWitt County.
Parents with a Purpose is a support group that is open to parents and guardians of children with special needs in DeWitt County.
Regional Radio News spoke with Autumn Kenny Thursday on what the goals are for the group.
Jenny Baker a mother and supporter of Parents with a Purpose talked about how hard it may be for some parents learning the new hardships. Baker experienced it first hand.
More information on how to get involved with "Parents with a Purpose" can be found on their Facebook page at Parents with a Purpose DeWitt.
