Parent Assistance Center (PAC)

Telephone (or walk-in) support is available in English and Spanish, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, except on holidays. PAC is staffed by parents, called Parent Partners, who have raised or are currently raising children with emotional, physical, and behavioral health care needs. PAC's Parent Partners provide support and helpful information, discuss options, offer encouragement, and inspire hope. They listen and help parents face challenges and find solutions that will meet the needs of their child and family. You may contact PAC by phone at 602.288.0155 or toll free at 1.877.568.8468 or by e-mail at pac@familyinvolvementcenter.org. Here are some specific examples of how PAC can help:CallCenterSupport-w
