Support Groups

Regrettably, AFN must suspend our support groups for October, November, and December 2015, due to the standstill of the Pennsylvania Budget. We are hopeful that this budget impasse will end soon and AFN can begin to offer these needed support groups again.

If you would like more information about this situation, please call our office at 412-246-2030 between 9:00am – 4:00pm.  We will be updating our website as new information emerges about the PA Budget so check back often.

AFN encourages you to call your local state representative and let your voice be heard about this impasse and the effects it is having on your family.
