The United Angels Foundation (UAF) is a non-profit, parent-to-parent support group. The primary mission of the foundation is to support parents and families of children with special needs through three main focuses: Interaction, Education, and Resources. Examples of these includes: newborn visits, parent lunches, online chat forums, youth and family activities, parent education seminars, and much more. As our name indicates, we view these special children as Angels. UAF believes that the most effective way to support these Angels is by supporting the parents and guardians who are raising them. We believe that creating a collaborative and inclusive environment will ultimately help to promote the healthy development of the individual child. Parent- to-parent support can be the key to helping a new parent understand and embrace the opportunities and challenges a child with special needs brings into their life.
