6th Annual Mom’s Retreat – For Moms of Children with Disabilties (Overnight)

Intended Audience: Mothers of children with special needs.

This retreat is designed for moms of children with disabilities. Relax and rejuvenate with other moms who share common experiences raising children with special needs. There will be opportunities to get information, network, relax, enjoy activities, and simply have some peace and quiet on your own. All meals and overnight accommodations for only $50 per person. The Retreat begins Saturday, May 18th at 9:00am and concludes May 19th at 11:30am. As mothers of children with special needs, how we use and replenish our personal energy matters–a lot! A presentation by Lisa Kinderman from 1:00-3:00pm on Saturday will help us learn to identify our personal energy needs, take a look at how our values inform our ability to focus and prioritize, and learn how to implement new healthy living habits.
