Family Involvement Center (FIC) is staffed by parents who have personal, lived experience raising a child with special needs. We understand how stressful, overwhelming and isolating it can be to care for a child who has emotional and behavioral health, physical health, educational, developmental, trauma or substance use challenges. We help other parents by sharing what we have learned on our journeys and by offering support and compassion. We call this Parent-to-Parent Support.
Parent-to-Parent Support is individualized support designed to help you meet the needs of your children and family. Our staff, called Peer Parent Support Partners (PPSPs), have experience navigating health care systems, school systems, juvenile justice, the Department of Child Safety, foster care and more. Our role is to walk with you on your journey, to share what we learned raising our children and to support you, the parent, at every turn. PPSP’s help ensure that your voice is heard and that you are involved in decisions about your child. We encourage you to take a lead role in your child’s treatment, care and life because you know your child’s and family’s needs best.
