Sunday Social Groups currently ON HOLD to preserve public health.

Meet peers in your community at one of our new Sunday Social Groups! Each group is unique and participant led. 

First: Register for a free participant profile.

Next: Once registered, see dates listed below for current and upcoming groups. Attendance of registered participants will be assumed. Monthly confirmations or absent notices are appreciated

Group ages are a guideline only, if your participant is interested in a theme or activity 
outside of their age category, they may still sign up.  

All groups are led by an experienced facilitator to ensure an inclusive and engaging environment. Participants under the age of 13 or those requiring specialized support must have an adult remain on premises. Groups take place in the autism building at the CV Child Development Association.
