We Are Brave Together

Founded in 2017 by Jessica Patay, ​mother to a 18-year-old son with Prader-Willi syndrome, We Are Brave Together (WABT) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to support caregiving mothers to children, any age, with any diagnosis, disability, or challenge, including learning differences, ADHD, and mental health issues. This international community includes over 1350 moms in 45 states and 10 countries. Passionate about serving and encouraging moms of special needs children everywhere, Jessica wishes she could look every mom in the eyes and tell her, “You are not alone.” (

WABT is based in Southern California and was launched with the intention and mission to help combat the isolation and compassion fatigue that mothers face, by offering support groups, educational workshops, and retreats. The organization believes that by empowering, educating, and providing a community for moms, entire families will be positively impacted. During this COVID season, WABT is offering both virtual and in-person support groups. It has satellite support groups popping up all over the United States, and in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.  WABT also offers an inspirational and resourceful podcast, Brave Together with Jessica Patay, which can be found on Apple, Spotify, Amazon and Stitcher.
