Mother starts Voices 4 Autism Parent Support Group in Natchitoches

Lela Harvey started the Voices 4 Autism Parent Support Group because she has a son with Autism. She felt having someone else to talk to helps.

“Sometimes you feel like you’re the only one,” she said. “Whether you need help, information, or a shoulder to cry on, it helps to talk to another parent who really understands what you’re going through.”

Lela attended other meetings and saw a need for a local outlet that will be more accessible to the Natchitoches community. The group held its first meeting in February 2019.

The next scheduled meeting is Saturday, March 9 from 2-3:30 pm at the Natchitoches Parish Library in the third floor meeting room. The group will continue to meet one Saturday out of each month.
