First I want to apologize for not answering your question yesterday. Also, I need to let you know that I am not a medical professional, but a mother of a boy who is living with type 1. My son was diagnosed 7 yrs. ago at the age of three.
You may have already found this, but below is a link to a yahoo support group.
Another idea is to talk to your Endocrinologist and ask. Possibly they have a bulletin board and you can post a flyer and try to start a support group in your area. It does not hurt to ask. Go for it.
Also, there is a cool website (non-diabteic related) where you can post different types of ads for FREE. You simply click on your city (on the right-hand side of the page) or the city nearest to you and then look to the upper left of the page where it says COMMUNITY and there is a sub-category for GROUPS. Then click post and type away. Craig's List is a very well known website and has many visitors.
www.craigslist.org then find your city on the right side.
I wish you the best of luck and hope you find support in your area.
