The CONNECTED Program of Family Voices of MN is the “Parent to Parent” organization working throughout the state of Minnesota to answer questions, and provide support, resources and information. We are parents and family members of children with special needs and we help other families and professionals understand the various systems that are encountered related to disabilities and extra needs.
What do CONNECTED families get?
- Connection with another parent who has a child with similar needs or experiences
- Information and assistance to help you get needed services and supports including financial, healthcare, educational and community life
- Emotional support, understanding and acceptance so you do not feel alone
- Encouragement and education to empower you to speak up for your child and get needed services
