next FUEL activity will be!

Learning that your child has a disability is one of the most difficult things for a parent to hear. The anger, confusion, depression, and devastation that go along with this news are all common reactions. It can be difficult for a parent to cope when they don't know where to turn for help.

What is Fuel Family Support?

Fuel Family Support is the area of

Made 2 Thrive which focuses on building and encouraging individuals and families with special needs through support groups, family get-togethers, and resources that can be beneficial to the needs of families involved in

Made 2 Thrive.

What specifically does Fuel do?

We are in the process of creating various avenues of support for families, including sibling support groups, Spanish speaking support groups, and links to organizations, businesses, and foundations that can help families with special needs.

How can I get involved?

If you or a family member has special needs, we invite you to join one of our support groups. These groups are designed to give family members an opportunity to share and be encouraged by other families who share similar experiences, as far as living with special needs.

Do these activities cost?

Made 2 Thrive is striving to keep costs at a minimum in order to allow all people who want to join to have the opportunity.

How can I help?

We can always use donations to help cover the costs of supplies, refreshments, and child-care for children of those participating in the groups.

We also need locations in the Wise County area that are available for having support group meetings.


Family Support

Celebrating Me!

Ladies 21 years and older are invited to attend this unique opportunity to share with peers our struggles, learn to better understand our emotions, as well as how to handle our emotions. 

This is only for those individuals who have special needs.

Helping families feel heard and moment at a time.

The stress on the individual with special needs as well as on the family doesn't end with diagnosis.

Many stresses and experiences are difficult through the life of the family.

Made 2 Thrive is committed to providing emotional support, information, and resources for parents, caregivers, and siblings of children and adults with special needs.

Made 2 Thrive pledges to continue to

be the "surrogate family" that so

many people have come to lean and

depend upon.

Almost any parent of a special needs child understands...

the difficulty, at times, in finding friends who understand the differences in your child.

the stress that having a child with special needs causes on a marriage, and the family.

the sadness of knowing how hard the world can be on those who are "different."
