Family to Family Network has helped me truly understand the Special Education process and what my rights are as a parent. The knowledge I have gained from working with Family to Family has given me the power to make informed decisions regarding my child.

There are not many places in Houston who support Special Needs children/familes that provide the time, knowledge and resources while genuinely caring like Family 2 Family. Whenever I am unsure of something going on with my daughter whether it has to do with her IEP, Accomodations, Modifications, etc they are they to help and I can always count on them to speak with me so I can discuss what I can do and what needs to be done. They are very informative and everytime I talk with someone there I learn something new I didn't before.

Family2Family the best sounding board available to a parent with special needs children. Any concern that I have about how to approach an issue with an IEP or at an ARD, they have at least four or five resources for me to consider and lots of advice to offer. Their experience and willingness to share their time with me has truly had a positive impact on the services and education received by our special needs child. Also, the conferences they organize are streamlined and pertinent to the special needs community in our area.

Upon realizing we were going to move from out of state to Katy, TX, we contacted F2F regarding special education services in the Katy area for out high functioning Autistic child. Immediately, we got straightforward, realistic details on how things were in the area school districts (lingo, budgeting, etc.), what services to avoid and tons of information that helped us advocate for our child. Insteading of feeling clueless, we felt like we had a fair grasp on a new and complex special education system.

As a professional, I rely on Family to Family digest to keep up to date with trainings for myself and events/resources for the families I serve. When I am stumped on a problem related to children with special needs or special education, Family to Family is one of the first sites I check.

Family To Family always help us to improve our son's Iep goals.
He is only reading because we learned from them how to ask for a reading program. Thank you!

I learned about Family2Family from my niece. I know from my great nephew's care and opportunities in the Katy, Texas, area, that this organization is all about service. Family2Family serves parents, children, other family members, and also the public; this nonprofit enables all to understand and move forward with knowledge about available resources. People NEED Family2Family

Many kudos to Family2Family! Keep up this great work!

As a board member of both local and national level autism advocacy organizations, for years I have referred parents to Family to Family Network for help navigating special ed in Texas' public schools, and many other topics important to families of children with disabilities. They are unquestionably one of the most cost efficient, effective, family-friendly non-profits in Texas. Even though I've been at the advocacy game for a long time, I call on them periodically for issues related to my son with autism as he gets older and we face new challenges.

Somehow get more funding to increase staff and provide more parent liaisons.

Family 2 Family is a unique resource available to families unlike any other organization. They have identified a variety of needs for families of children with disabilities across a wide variety of ages and ability levels, and have developed and provided training and support to address each. F2F is an organization that I routinely consult with for needed information. They have a high degree of expertise and are always able to assist or point me towards additional resources. I commonly refer parents to F2F.

F2F is a fabulous resource for families AND other professionals. I am new to the Houston area and recently attended a talk by Mary Jane. She is a dynamic speaker and gave a very helpful talk. I've been in the field for a long time, so there's not much that I haven't heard, but she managed to present a new and interesting topic. I will use her insights time and time again. Thank you for being such a champion in our field!
