Back to School During Covid

Tools & Resources for Families

Visit our Back to School During Covid Web Page dedicated to resources, tools and support for families facing the challenges of when and how to send their children with extra medical, physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional needs.


CONNECTED is a free state-wide parent-to-parent peer support program provided by Family Voices of Minnesota for families whose children have chronic or complex special healthcare needs or disabilities.

GET CONNECTED with resources, information and other parents who understand what you are going through.

All staff of Family Voices of MN are also parents of a child with a disability or chronic health condition. We are here to listen and connect you with resources and other parents.


Our Annual Benefit is Going Virtual!

Connect With Resources and Other Families During The Covid-19 Outbreak



Family Voices of Minnesota recently surveyed 103 families about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their families and well-being. Not surprisingly, families of children with extra medical, physical, developmental, behavioral or emotional needs are feeling more isolated than ever. You are not alone. Reach out today to connect with another parent.

Parent Networking & Support Groups

One in Five Minnesota families with children have a child with a disability or chronic health condition. We do not have to feel alone.

We are pleased to be offering a variety of parent networking and support groups this fall. Groups are open to parents of children and youth with special health care needs or disabilities. Connect in a private, safe space to share understanding, support and resources.

Choose from a variety of virtual groups including a guided journaling group, virtual support groups that you can access from your own home and an in-person group in the Metro area.
