Helping Other Parents Excel

H.O.P.E. (Helping Other Parents Excel) is a program designed to give parents, loved ones, and caregivers a safe place to come for positive feedback, socializing, problem solving, and other issues that may arise when raising or caring for someone on the spectrum. The goal is to help parents and caregivers get new ideas, meet new people, and get support in a safe, and understanding environment. Whether you have advice to share with other parents, need feedback, or want to hear ideas from what other parents have seen become a positive experience, all are welcome to attend.

Meetings occur on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of every month at noon at the CAC. Also, HOPE meets on the 2nd Wednesday at noon. Feel free to bring a sack lunch to enjoy.

The cost to attend H.O.P.E. is absolutely free. No need to sign up (unless you need childcare for the evening meetings). Meetings are conveniently held at the CAC, 1400 McCallie Ave, Chattanooga, TN. If you have questions, email Celeste Lipps.
