Before I knew about Forever Friends Network, my teenage son was isolated without friendships and I prayed for help daily. I am 100% committed to FFN's cause and our families. As parents of kids on the Autism Spectrum, we often feel hopeless and even alone. Something as simple as our child having a friend, is something that doesn't come easy when they are often judged and perceived as "weird" by their peers that are not on the Autism Spectrum. FFN has not only given my son the chance to make true friendships, but as a bonus I have an amazing group of parents that I have pulled support from. Autism doesn't feel so lonely anymore. My son has come along way in the past 5 months and I owe my thanks to FFN and the wondrful families that it is made up from. The picture is my son Draven. I can not express how much this picture means to me. His smile is priceless and is because he is attending a social meeting at FFN at the time that it was taken. He is filled with undeniable happiness because he has found the one place so far that he fits.

Love Forever Friends Network. My two children with Autism have a safe place to hang out with people who will not judge them. They can be themselves.

I get to talk with other parents/care-givers who understand the struggles I go through.

Great bunch of people who support their children and each other.

My son has always struggled with friends and keeping friends but Forever Friends has given him friends that will always be there and accept him for who he is! This is a wonderful group of people and Regina has the biggest heart ever, she is a blessing and so is this group. I give it 5 stars and thank God we are apart of it! I also feel like I've made friends with other parents who aren't judging me. I hope it will forever be there for our awesome kids!
Thank you to all the volunteers who make this happen!

For years I watched my nephew long to have just one true friend. Then he attended a Forever Friends Network event and his world changed. He fit in and had not one but many friends. This is a wonderful and accepting group!

My son is 15 and is on the Autism Spectrum. I was lucky enough to find Forever Friends Network. The social meetings have been amazing for my son. Where before FFN, he did not have friends and never quite fit in with his peers, now after the meetings he has a whole group of friends. He fits in perfectly! This organization is newer, but they are out to do great things in the community. It is completely judgment free. The parent to parent support is amazing to!
