Three years ago when my daughter graduated from HPS I was shocked to find that there was no social outlet for her to meet up with old friends, so Social "U" was created to fill that void. Social "U" has been a blessing to me as well as to all of our members. I feel that I get as much back from the members as they do from the group - each of our members are truly AMAZING!
Gina and Kris started as co-workers at a previous employer and the work relationship turned into a true friendship built on trust, honestly and a willingness to help others. Gina's fun loving personality brings so much energy to every meeting and all our members love her.
Angela is a welcome addition to our team. Kris and Angela met at work over 15 years ago and turned that meeting into a very special friendship. When the group first started Angela was on board with helping any way she could even though she had her hands full with work and a very busy family life. Whenever we need fresh ideas, craft expertise or a helping hand at meetings, Angela is there. Angela's children also help out with the group when their schedule allows. Angela believes in what the group stands for and makes all our members feel special.
Friends Old, New & Social "U" is so much more than a social group. We are a community of volunteers, parents, caregivers, families, and professionals interested in improving the lives of and providing services to adults with special needs.
Below is the start of a list of organizations and/or avenues that can help you when trying to secure and locate services for a loved one with special needs.
