Parent-to-Parent: Our Family Story

Family Stories

    Whether it’s a newly diagnosed disability, a move, a change in home environment, sibling concerns or celebrations.
    Every parent is an expert in their child’s disability. Yes! Every parent has found at least one special way to help their child.
    Share these treasured moments and victories through the gift of time with other parents by volunteering to become a supporting parent.
    Families Together’s Parent-to-Parent program matches supporting parents (who have experience raising a child with a disability) with referred parents who need someone to listen, encourage and support them. Referred parents request a match based on their individual child and family needs. Many times the match develops into a long-term friendship.
