One of the great things about living in central New Jersey, and in Hillsborough in particular, is the amazing amount of resources available to families raising a child with special needs. Many wonderful programs are right at our fingertips, but are still sometimes hard to find. That's because most service providers are working with very limited budgets - there generally isn't much money available to get the word out.
The Care to Share Support Network is one of these resources. Its mission is to provide comprehensive support services for families of children with special needs. Care to Share sponsors fun events for kids and educational evenings for adults, and is a great resource for finding other support services in Somerset County.
But probably the best thing Care to Share does is act as a communication network for families. Many families that participate in Care to Share already have the answers that other families are looking for. And sometimes it's great just to be able to share your experiences, joys, and frustrations with other parents that know what you're going through.
Care to Share is having its first fundraising event on Saturday January 5, 2008 from 10:30am to 2:30 pm at St. Joseph's Church. This event, co-sponsored by Bridgewater based Hop, Skip, and a Jump, and featuring a performance by Mr. Ray, promises to be a treat for kids and parents alike.

See you there!
