What is Parent to Parent?           

Learning that your child has a disability can be a traumatic experience.  We offer emotional support and information about disabilities and community resources to parents who are just learning about or seeking new information on their child's disability, illness or special health care needs.  Parent to Parent is a nationwide organization that offers local support and resources to families in need.  Parents have many questions and concerns in coping with their child's needs and their own feelings.  Personal support from another parent, who has a child with similar needs, can be helpful in coping with these challenging experiences and feelings. Helping Parents (volunteer peer mentors) are available to provide support and information.     

  • Matching parents in one-to-one relationships with trained, experienced parents, based on similar diagnoses and family issues
  • Providing personal support
  • Information and education about disabilities
  • Referral to services in the community
  • Culturally relevant services through ethnic outreach
  • Training for parents who want to become Helping Parent peer mentor volunteers
  • E-newsletter
