Our annual U.N.I.T.E. event stands for "Understanding Inclusion Takes Everyone". The goal behind this event is to bring together organizations from across our area that serves families of individuals with special needs. This event is powerful in that it brings all of these local resources to one place, where we can be united in mission and accessible for families to connect. This event is hosted every spring in Downtown Greensboro at beautiful LeBauer Park. It is co-hosted by the following organizations: Family Support Network of Central Carolina, Downtown Greensboro, Greensboro Parks and Rec and Greensboro Downtown Parks, Inc. This year's event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but all of our participating vendors can be found below for more information on their organizations.
