REACh Families
Reaching East African Children and Families 
Families Raising Children with Special Needs

REACh Families is a support group for families in the Dallas/Fort Worth area raising children with special needs.Most families in the group are of East African origin. The purpose of the support group is to encourage, support and advocate for families and their children with disabilities. 


We feature monthly speakers to provide parents information to empower and enable them to effectively advocate for their children. It will also allow parents to share experiences, resources and support each other.
