Parents (and significant others) of Adults with Disabilities (PAD) gather on the first Tuesday of the month. Please double check the calendar as we may skip meetings for holidays or other reasons. Meeting is from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at IHOP Restaurant, 1101 S. Mopac (Loop 1).

For those who are new to this group directions are below.  Below that is a list of opportunities and information that you might find of interest.

Meetings are informal and open to all parents and other adult family caregivers of adults with disabilities who require ongoing support and guidance through their adult lives.  There is no charge for attending.

Parents attend as their schedule (and traffic) allows. Feel free to join us for whatever time you can spare.  Our meetings vary in content. We frequently have a speaker to keep us informed. We also have unstructured meetings, just giving us time to share what we have in common and what resources we may have come across that are helpful.

I look forward to seeing you there.
