For Parents of Children with Disabilities

Children need families, and families need support.  When families struggle to care for their children with disabilities, the first priority for support should be to help families in raising their children at home. 

  • Support needs to be organized to help families in their own homes.
  • Support needs to be individually tailored to be effective.
Sometimes parents need another family to share parenting of a child who would otherwise face growing up in a facility. Choosing a Support Family can be a way to share parenting that supports a child and their family.
