What Our Families are Saying

In an afternoon, I think you have changed my son’s future and my confidence as a mother.

-A Mom 

This site is a great resource for families dealing with disabilities and other challenges. Families Together provides information and encouragement with compassion - thanks for all you do!

They helped me with issues with my son and his school.

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.
-Social Worker at CMH

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

-Mom from Topeka

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.
