Hi Elizabeth, You might want to try to contact a local hospital to see if they are willing to provide a room and time for your group to meet. They might even be willing to provide you with some free publicity. Starting a stuttering support group is a challenge, for sure. You might have to have meetings with one or two people to begin with, and build from there. There are ways to advertise in local papers to "get the word out." I saw our NSA group in Royal Oak, Michigan, go from 2-4 people at our meetings to sometimes 25 or more. It takes time to build a good core group. Bernie
