PPAL Family Network & Social Support

PPAL Family Network Socials are free, fun and educational!  They are run by parents just like you!

PPAL staff is currently working remotely due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak. We have established virtual groups to support you and we hope that you keep in touch during this time of uncertainty. Please find the conference line and PIN numbers for each group from below. Don’t forget the #. Virtual groups will replace all the in-person meetings until further notice.
