Family Activity Center

At St. Francis Children’s Center, we believe in serving and supporting the entire family…not just the child. With that in mind, our newest program, the Family Activity Center, offers free and low-cost programming and events for families throughout the community who have children with special needs. In the Family Activity Center, parents and caregivers can find support and share resources while networking with others.

Browse our event calendar below. All events are free unless a fee is specified. Events requiring reservations are noted.
