The Groden Network Parents & Friends Association, commonly known as the “PFA”, is an organization comprised of family members and friends of people we support at the Groden Network , as well as Groden Network staff. The group meets monthly, typically on the 3rd Monday of the month. The group focuses on providing support and information in a social atmosphere. Topics presented have included communication, stress management, transition and adult services, SSI, and many more. The PFA is also actively involved in fundraising efforts, with the proceeds directly allocated to enhancing the programs of the Groden Network.
