Support Meetings/Workshops

We at Share Parents of Utah want you to know that we are here for you. We know this may be a complicated and stressful time for many of our Share families. We are here to listen and bounce helpful ideas off one another. We are in this together. 


2) If you need to talk personally, our Share Helpline is 801-272-5355.

3) If you prefer email: info@shareparentsofutah.org.

4) WE HAVE SUSPENDED SOME OF OUR IN-PERSON, SUPPORT GROUP MEETINGS and have replaced them with "Zoom Cloud Meetings". We will resume holding a few face-to-face Support Meetings in June. These virtual meetings are really helpful and we can see one another as we talk (not required, but is an option). It's a wonderful way for us to still support one another. You can download the "Zoom" app onto your phone and/or computer - it's super simple! By clicking one of the linked meetings, it will walk you through the easy-to-understand process.
