As #AgentsOfChange, we are committed to making a difference for our 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 have the power to move on to further education, employment, or independent living after high school. 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.
Upon receiving a disability diagnosis for their children, many families 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 provide 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 through their website. 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. “I am impressed with the consideration and inclusion with Family to Family Network. They are inspiring with their forward thinking and I am honored to be part of the community they serve."
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.
