App for Millennial Moms Raising Kids with Special Needs
Most moms of special needs children all have one thing in common. Feeling alone. Your friends and family love you sure. But they don’t really understand the work, pain and even fear. Wolf + Friends wants to end this. When you feel alone, you’re not. There’s an entire community of people out there to connect with.
NEW APP FOR MOMS
From Wolf+Friends comes the launch of its new content. A community app specifically for moms raising children with special needs.
The Wolf + Friends app is designed for moms to connect with other moms who just get it. Find women in your own neighborhood who are also raising special needs children. From autism, anxiety, ADHD, sensory processing issues, developmental delays, mental health issues, down syndrome, and other learning differences.
How the APP Works
In a judgment-free space, members will create a peer to peer support system. Connect via direct messages and group chats. Find new friends and mentors. The community will also have access to a curated content feed. Here they can read the relevant news, shop stylish and developmentally appropriate products, and get lifestyle tips. From occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, child psychologists, behaviorists, financial advisors, and other experts will contribute.
Wolf + Friends began as an inclusive shopping platform for parents raising children of all abilities,” said Carissa Tozzi, co-founder of Wolf + Friends. “But we soon discovered that our amazing community of special needs moms needed more support. Many were feeling isolated and alone and wanted to meet friends nearby who would truly understand the beauty and challenges of raising a child with special needs.
This is the app for moms that I wish I had when my son was first diagnosed with autism,” said Gena Mann, co-founder Wolf + Friends. “We launched Wolf + Friends to be the tool for parents raising kids with a variety of developmental differences. It can be hard to find a friend you relate to or get advice on the best specialists in your community—especially when you are a first-time parent to a child who has special needs. With the Wolf + Friends app, we have brought together the elements we wanted more of—community, mentors, support—with digestible information that parents like us crave.
