Mom2Mom Support Group Connects New Jersey Mothers

autism mom support group

“We understand you…because we ARE you!” is the motto for Mom2Mom, a non-profit organization located in Piscataway.

Since their start in 2010 they have opened up more than 30 sub-offices throughout the state with more than 50,000 client contacts. It’s been a true success and a helpful resource for the community.

What are they exactly? They are a team of mothers who each have children with special needs ranging from learning disabilities, to depression, anxiety, abuse, autism, and many others. They understand the pressure that parents go through when caring for their unique children, so they have come together to offer their support to their fellow New Jerseyans.

Parents of children with special needs can often feel overstressed and overwhelmed with everything that they’re going through. Sometimes all you need is someone to talk to who can empathize with your situation. And that’s what counselors at Mom2Mom will do. But the help doesn’t end there. Mothers also share information about school recommendations, learning devices, therapies, and other resources that have had success.

Nina Rivera is one mother who recently reached out for help. She was struggling with her 15 year old son Linsey’s learning disabilities. The boy has autism and his mother was looking for school programs in her area. Once she called in, she was matched to another mother who’s had similar experiences and was able to get the information she was looking for.

Although the name suggests it is only for mothers, Mom2Mom actually reaches a step further. Their services are available to any parent or any guardian of a child with special needs. The organization hopes to create a place of compassion and encouragement so caregivers across the state don’t feel alone.

Their team is designed to be the sigh of relief when needed and a source of information. Their phone help line and Live Cat service is available to anyone residing in New Jersey 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

    Esa es mi Raquel! Enorabuena por ese articulo sincero, valiente y humilde.Si no tuvieramos nada que mejorar ¿para qué ese camino que llamamos vida? que aburrido seria todo.Para aprender hay que saber mirar de frente en nuestro interior, reconocer todo aquello con lo que dia a dia nos boicoteamos y cuya justificación buscamos fuera, en otro sitio, en otra persona.La felicidad está solamente en nuestro interior.
