for an update on the Darn Group's Founding Mother, Audrey. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
The group was formed to meet the needs of families who children
have been diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome (AS) or other High Functioning forms of Autism (HFA). DARN functions basically
as a local support group whose members represent a diverse mix of economic status, cultures & religions. Collectively,
our members hold a wealth of knowledge. Each of us holds a piece of the puzzle that another person just might need. Collectively,
we can mend lives fragmented by Asperger Syndrome. Together we can make the journey a little more manageable.
DARN's Mission Statement
We will lend a listening ear and an empathetic
We will support and uplift each other as we do
our part to educate each other, our communities,
doctors and our schools, too, that our children
they just need the right tools.
