The purpose of Support for Families is to ensure that families of children with any kind of disability or special health care need have the knowledge and support to make informed choices that enhance their children's development and well being. Through fostering partnership among families, professionals and the community our children can flourish.
Support for Families offers a wide range of information, education, and parent-to-parent peer support services free of charge to families at our Family Resource Center. Last year alone, nearly 800 families consulted with our Community Resource Parents; attendance at our workshops and trainings exceeded 2,500; more than 100 volunteer Parent Mentors and 400 other volunteers donated their time and talents; nearly 300 parents attended one of 18 Support Groups; and hundreds of kids and families enjoyed one or more of our many recreational and social events.Consistently, more than 90% of families responding to follow-up surveys tell us that the information, education, and support they received helped them feel better prepared to solve problems and gave them appropriate information about options, services, laws or resources. They reported being better prepared to advocate for their child's needs using positive parent-professional collaboration. Support for Families manages several local and statewide projects to address needs such as inclusion of children with disabilities in education and recreation programs, inter-agency coordination of early intervention and referral services, and health care access. Support for Families also provides educational and referral services to professionals who work with families, and actively collaborates with other organizations and service providers to work towards a more coordinated, family-friendly network of services.
