Family to Family has been providing a high quality variety of needed services in the Houston area for over a decade. They were one of the first resources that I turned to for help with my son with autism when he was first Dx'd 11 years ago. Over the years I have used them in variety of ways: attending events when my kids were young; going through the Disability Leadership training; getting spot advice when I was in a pinch with the school; being matched to an older couple through the Family Friends program (no longer funded) and networking with other families. Now they produce the best special needs monthly calendar in the city of Houston-- I regularly forward it to professionals who are looking for resources for their client families. I also regularly forward the website for Texas Project First--the only website for parents written by parents. They will make sure any of funding is put to excellent use in direct service of families who need help.

Family 2 Family is without a doubt a needed and valuable asset to the many families with children who have unique and special needs. Most importantly, keep in mind that the effort put forth by F2F supports the entire community, as the foundation of the organization assists parents in raising independent adults who contribute to society. Without the efforts of F2F the entire community will experience the negative impact due to the loss of such a wonderfully supportive organization. There is not enough time or room on this post to list all the many positive ways F2F makes an impact on the community it serves. I am immensely thankful to F2F staff and board members.

Family 2 Family Network has provided me with the power of knowledge. I understand my child's academic rights thanks to trainings, conferences and seminars that were sponsored by Family 2 Family Network. I also reference the Texas Project FIRST website to answer any of my further questions. I am proud to say that I am a Parent Advocate for my two girls and I always try to help others (the best to my knowledge) by educating new parents of children with disabilities. I have Family 2 Family Network to thank for making me a better and stronger person for my children.

Family to Family Network has helped my family become better aware of our rights within the school district. We are parents of two special needs children whom were struggling academically until Family to Family helped guide us in the right direction. Now, with the right modifications in place, our children are successful in their school environment. Thanks, Family to Family Network!

Family 2 Family Network has gone far and beyond the call of duty! If I need any advice when it comes to school meetings to therapies that would best suit my child, F2F network is there to lend a helping hand... FREE of charge! It's like having my own free legal advocate who does the research for me prior to school meetings and therapy sessions. Thank you, Family 2 Family Network!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

researching laws that can help a parent during the ARD meeting process.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

having my own free child advocate just a phone call away.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

parents of other children with disabilities that understand our lifestyle and what trials and tribulations we go through on an everyday basis.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

force school districts to uphold the Individual Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to it's highest degree of standards.

Family to Family has provided me and my community with a plethora of helpful information and resources. I look forward to attending their workshops and annual Special Education Parent & Resource Fair. Their willness to provide assistance at low or no cost to parents struggling with issues related to having a child/love-one with a disability is key.

I have to two young sons with special needs. I had no friends that also had kids with special needs so I was totally lost. This organization has helped us with advice, answering emails and also with giving us tickets to go to sporting events. Having two special needs children is very expensive and they helped me find organizations and grants that could help us to pay for services. They also gave us brochures and advice and kind words when we stopped by right after the diagnosis of my oldest.

Family to Family Network has been a life saver!! I have to children with disabilities and I found about this organization about 14 years ago. The knowledge, experience, support, training, help, friendships, understanding, etc.... I can not explain in words. It is invaluable!!! Thanks in part to this organization and what I have learned from them my children have a bright future in front of them! I have attended parents training's, workshops, social meetings, I know how to do a Portfolio, I know how to advocate, I feel strong thanks to them. They have always helped me when I have called them with questions. My family participated in the Family Friend Program. This organization is the BEST in Houston. My children disabilities are not the same and any other organization specializes in a certain disability, this is also what makes F2F unique! I will always be grateful for all their help and support thought out so many year. Thanks F2F!!!. Angeles

Family to Family Network is Houston's premier non-profit organization providing education, training, support and referrals on the Texas special education system. Their "Texas Project FIRST" website contains links to everything you would want or need to know about special education in Texas. As the parent of a child with autism, and newly-relocated to the Houston area, Family to Family provided me with a wealth of information to prepare for my child's IEP meeting. But most importantly, Family to Family produces a monthly e-newsletter about EVERYTHING happening in the Houston (and surrounding) area that might be of interest to families of children with disabilities [conferences, seminars, respite services, outings, support group meetings], as well as organizing a few social opportunities as well (holiday parties, picnics, Lil Rustlers).

Family to Family is THE BEST. The Seminars that they offer are most
informative and professionally given.

As far a personal help with my sons and their school; I cannot say
enough good things about the organization and all who are a part of
it.

I have struggled for
years to get my son's high school to hear my
grievances and struggles with their system. F2F help me write complaints to TEC with examples and regulations violated. I now
feel I have a real chance of being heard and changing their system.
I am eternally grateful for all that F2F does to educate and inform
parents.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seminars, issues at my son's school

get them a large grant to further their work
