In June for the past few years we’ve replaced our regular parent meetings with family picnics instead. Families seem to enjoy this time after school ends to just relax and spend some informal time together, so it’s officially an annual tradition now!
FUSE will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, buns and paper products. Families will each pitch in a side dish and a small dessert item. We will plan to eat first and after the meal families are invited to stay around and socialize while the kids run and play or just enjoy the park atmosphere. Feel free to bring outdoor games or sporting equipment that your family would like to play or share with the group.
Please spread the word to other families you know who might like to learn more about FUSE! The picnic will be a great informal way to meet other families and learn about how FUSE can help their family with information and support needs.
*Please note the Shelby County picnic is on a SUNDAY to help accommodate some of our families whose schedules conflict on Mondays

The playground at Kennedy Park is a fully accessible playground designed for kids of all abilities to play together, so please spread the word to other families in Shelby County and encourage them to attend!
The picnics will replace our regular meetings, and we take July off at both locations, so the next regular meetings at our usual locations will be in August.
At FUSE we provideinformation, resources and support to Indiana families raising children with special needs. When families first learn that their child has a disability or a special health care need, they often don’t know where to turn. We serve as a handbook that guides families to information and resources that make the challenge of parenting a child with special needs a little easier. We have training sessions, Q&A meetings, and seasonal social functions, so families have a variety of ways to get involved. Families can participate in any of those ways, or they can just receive the newsletter to stay on top of current disability news and information.
