match volunteer skills with the interests of the people in the

Important Parents (VIP)
VIP is a support group for parents with cognitive disabilities.
The group meets once a month to learn new parenting skills and
discusses topics such as safety, hygiene, nutrition, education,
and discipline. In the spirit of circular common interest, VIP
is looking for people who have children with cognitive disabilities
to become Volunteer Mentors for parents in the support group.
Volunteer Mentors are encouraged to give an hour of their time
each month to assist and support VIP members. People interested
in presenting information on parenting topics are also encouraged
