About Families Together, Inc.

We are here to help, whether you are just starting out or experiencing a challenge along the way. We provide assistance with early intervention, education, health care, transitions, and community resources to support the academic, behavioral, social, emotional, and mental well being of children, youth, and families.

Kansas’ Central Hub for Supporting Families

We are Kansas’ federally designated Parent Training & Information Center (PTI) and Family-to-Family Health Information Center (F2F). We provide support to families and their children with disabilities, and special health care needs. Our Parent-to-Parent program matches parents who have experience raising a child with a disability with parents who need someone to listen, encourage, and support them.

I recently had a family tell me what a wondrous level of resources you had for Transition. I agree. You are absolutely one of the most learned content experts on the subject. So grateful for all the information you provide and guidance you give.

Thank you so much for the information you sent to me.  It helped me feel more prepared for my daughter’s IEP meeting.

Every person I have met here at Families Together, Inc. is so kind. Whenever I have any questions, they have helped me, and they have oriented me. They have given me the strength to continue fighting for the welfare of my children.
