The DREAMS Foundation of Acadiana now has a new program to help support moms of children with special needs.

The new DREAMS Teams Moms Support Group meets the third Friday of every month at Jammin' Java on Verot School Road in Lafayette.

A support program for Dads was announced last week: DREAMS Foundation launches support group for dads of those with special needs

The next meeting for Moms is scheduled for Friday, August 21 at 6:30 pm.

The Foundation says that the support group is open to moms of special needs children/adults and want to connect with other moms to discuss topics that impact daily living related to caring for a loved one with simple to complex medical conditions, such as epilepsy, autism, spina bifida, cerebral palsy, down syndrome and more.

"The response to the moms support group has been overwhelming and we are so fortunate to provide this free service to the community," said D.R.E.A.M.S. Executive Director Donielle Watkins in a press release. "We will even offer a virtual option via Zoom for those moms who are not able to attend in person."
