We are embracing our commitment to helping the community by donating $10 in your name to help empower the lives of children and families alike to make dreams, reality. Family to Family Network provides family members and youth with disabilities the necessary tools and training so that they can increase their knowledge in order to ensure they receive a quality education, so that youth ultimately move on to further education, employment, or independent living after high school – Just like everyone else! Family to Family Network believes that all children should be included in our schools and communities and that children’s futures should not be dictated by a disability label.
Many families, upon receiving a disability diagnosis for their children, retreat into isolation because the systems they find themselves involved with are overwhelming and frightening. Each system, whether education, social service, or health care, presents challenges due to the complex rules that must be followed in order to gain help. That's where Family to Family comes in - providing information on the various systems, referrals to community resources, and training events on various disability topics in the office, community and at their annual conference. They created a website dedicated to providing accurate & consistent information on the special education process, a Guided Transition program to help families & youth transition successfully, as well as a Leadership & Advocacy training program. These programs give families and individuals with disabilities an opportunity to network and learn from one another while also creating a community where all children belong. “Family to Family Network has continued to go beyond expectations to help our community. They have been able to inspire families throughout our community to make the best of every day.”
With 80,000 lives already being touched, we want to make sure we are doing our part in the community by helping support organizations that can make a difference. Family to Family network will continue to expand and help more Texans with the help of people like you.
