HRM Bedford | Sackville
The HRM Bedford-Sackville Chapter of Autism Nova Scotia supports the growing number of families and individuals touched by autism in the central region. This group was founded 10 years ago by 2 moms, both whom were looking for social opportunities for their children and others on the autism spectrum.
As part of our mission since then, this chapter has grown into a support group for parents, family members and caregivers of persons living with autism. Once a month we meet to share and learn from other families, and most meetings we cover it all - laughter, tears, frustrations and celebrations!
We also hold monthly social events for families to come to and have fun. We currently hold dances, swims, a huge summer picnic and an awesome Christmas bounce party. These events are essential for families. They provide a place for families to connect with each other and a place where kids with ASD can interact with other children just like them.
We provide all families with a warm welcome – that is what we are here for. Meetings take place from 7pm – 9pm the first Tuesday of every month. See Facebook or Website for location of meetings/events.Contact: Paulette Butz by phone at (902) 865-3970 or email Merrill Cunningham at Bedfordsackville@autismns.ca
