As we all move through the unknown, one thing is certain—
VELA remains deeply committed to ensure that every family of a child with a disability has the knowledge, empowerment, resilience and community to thrive. As families face ﬁnancial loss, isolation, distance learning inequities and exhaustion, VELA has been listening and adapting its services and will continue to do so through new online courses & workshops, virtual support groups, case management, drive-thru family fun days and so much more. This year's Be the Light will invest in our ability to continue to show up bigger and better for families, when they need it most.
Founder Welcome & Happy Hour

Cafecito with Families
One of the strongest values for VELA is building community. We do that in our courses, workshops, support groups and family fun days. Join us for Cafecito with Families. Grab your coffee or tea-we will be joined by families who have graduated from VELA programming and you will get to hear their stories.
VELA Wellness Workshop
Ever wondered what it's like to take a VELA course? Join Nadine Rueb, our LCSW for an interactive workshop "3 Strategies to Increase your Wellbeing". Together, we will learn and practice skills to take care of ourselves- especially now.
