A Contagious Smile has been supporting families with both special needs as well as survivors of domestic violence for well over 17 years now. Victoria Cuore is a special needs parent, a survivor of domestic violence, and being of special needs herself, she understand first-hand just how challenging it was and still is to be able to find the assistance that you need. This is a place where there is no judgment, no bullying and you get to be YOU! They offer support groups, social groups, classes, legal preparation, and much more. Finally, a place where you can be amongst lifelong friends, who understand exactly who and where you are because each and every one of us has been there or is still there. We believe in having fun, learning with laughter, and supporting one another’s dreams.
