NURTURING FAMILY NETWORKS
Connecting with other families provides fresh perspectives and practical information, lessens isolation, and can help innovate new solutions. Offering and receiving support builds resilience. A family network can be a pathway to discovering and building upon resources already present within ‘your own backyard’.
As a family formed and led organization, we know firsthand the challenges in creating the best possible life for a loved one with a disability, from childhood to adulthood. While the purpose of a Family Network is to help you enhance the wellbeing of your loved one, oftentimes everyone in your family benefits.
For more information about Family Networks or to be added to our contact list please contact Natalie Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org).
