Birth to 3 Family Support Group Family Liaisons with the CHARGE Syndrome Foundation host a virtual support group for families with children aged birth – 3 years.  We recognize that this group goes through so much in the first 3 years of life and it can often feel isolating or overwhelming.  We want to offer a safe place where families can get together to connect, share, ask questions and get support with other families in the same boat. Meets monthly, virtually.  Click here for more information and to register.
