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.

My Supporting Parent was a lot of help!
Things are going great. You (Families Together, Inc.) gave me the information I needed when I needed it. I know you (Families Together, Inc.) will be there when I need you.
The teacher wanted to say thank you for our (Families Together, Inc.) support of an 18 year old during his IEP meeting. Teacher stated that the student said he “thought the meeting was about him and that he felt like his voice was heard.”
The school was unwilling to evaluate son with significant mental health needs. The next day Mom reported that “After all the struggles, I got one name (referred from army) and one phone number (Families Together, Inc.) and I know I am not alone.
Someone does understand.
I am not ALONE!
I now have piece of mind with trying the new therapy.
