Family to Family helped tremendously in changing the treatment of Life Skills students in my school
district. The Director helped me personally in so many ways. She helped me write and substantiate
my objections to then current school practices. More importantly, with the help of the
TEA, she helped
change them for future students in the District. This organization is wonderful!

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...

Family to Family Network has been such a valuable resource for our family! Through F2F, I've learned so much about other resources available to help us with our special-needs child! The folks at F2F have been so generous with their time, and really "plugged me in" so that I could get that support I need to be an advocate for my girl. Because of F2F, she's gone to the rodeo, and I've made connections, and she's at the best possible school for her.

Family to Family has been such a blesing to our family! When we realized the amount of help we would need with our child, it was fortunate I came across this organization. They provide many opportunities for special needs children (rodeo, sports, parties, attending professional games) where they can just be kids, and at the same time, for parents to connect. They also provide assistance with school issues and have a vast amount of experience. I've even received some help/ideas for preparing our wills and getting my son a plan......which is a huge relief!

The best thing about them is that it's not "can/can't," but "how are we going to," which is how I like to approach things, and they are so positive and good listeners.

I first became aware of F2F from my son's OT when he was around 1 year old. At the time, I did not understand how important this organization would become to our family. The first thing we did was sign up for a family friend. Carolyn came out to meet us and was so warm and friendly. She got us the perfect family friend, Ms. Reggie. Oh, how we love her! She was so good with my son, and I loved having her around as a friend too. I got on the email list a few years ago and that's where I learned about so many events going on in Houston for people with disabilities. I found out about the fun day in the fall at Lone Star College, attended a workshop to help my son with fine motor skills, went to an ARD preparation meeting to help with the beginning of school, found out about a sports organization through which I found out about a place where my son could receive therapy (and we both love it!), gave my son his first opportunity to participate in a walk-run to help support f2f, and finally....the Lil' Rustler Rodeo. I cannot even begin to tell you how much that event meant to him. He thought he was king of the show that day. He was so proud to be with all of the other kids, his buddies were fabulous, and he wore his belt buckle given to him for about 2 weeks straight (shorts, jeans, didn't matter). He loved it when people mentioned how big his buckle was and "You are definitely a real cowboy" comments. We are so grateful to Family to Family Network. It's a giant algorithm where one good opportunity leads to another. Sincerely, Tina Hill

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

there is always something to be a part of...for mom/dad, the child, or the whole family.

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

Incredibly helpful with anything and everything pertaining to my child with a disability.

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

build a huge facility with an indoor gigantic park accessible for all, with all sorts of therapists there (air conditioning!), and college kids going into education there to help out with the kids while parents attended meetings.

I don't really know, but I'm pretty certain the recession is the biggest challenge.

Family to family has ben a godsend to my family when my kids were diagnosed to be on the autism spectrum. They were full of information where to go, best places, people, resources, and I met the most wonderful friends.

Family to Family was a great source of information and encouragement as we fought for our daughter's inclusion in regular classes in the 90's and the new millennium . Their sponsored conferences and workshops included easy to understand sessions with dynamic speakers. Then, 20 years later we were back on their doorstep looking for advice for our granddaughter...their information and referral lists were current and extremely beneficial. We have been sending parents to this amazing organization for years

Family to family helps many parents of children with special needs learn about the resources in our area.
As a parent of a child with autism and another child who has learning disabilities I consider them a valuable resource.

Family To Family Network is a wealth of information and is located conveniently near our therapy center. I have two sons with special needs that have attended many events through F2F. They always answer questions too!

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.

As parents with a son with special needs, my husband and I are grateful to have access to a list of timely workshops and other events. It already is difficult to navigate our array of appointments, educational services and other areas; it would be impossible to access the websites of all the organizations to find what is beneficial to us.

F2F is a life saver! They are a non profit to help families and individuals navigate Special Education services, adult benefits, how to live and connect with others with disabilities, integrate into the community and feel confident about yourself and your future. They taught me about Medicaid waiting lists, how to build a relationship with the school, life books, how to plan for the future, how to be an advocate, and so much more. They have conferences that are INVALUABLE, their staff has a knowledge base of all most everything in Houston, they can always point you in the right direction and give you tools and websites to continue your search. They have been around a long time and are very well respected. You will see them all over the city at conferences and meetings gathering and disseminating information about how to solve problems and get connected! Be sure to check out their website and look for the "Tx Project First" tab. Save it as a favorite as you will refer to it often! I can not sing the praises of F2F enough! If you are confused where to go or what to do next, call F2F and they will point you in the right direction. :-)
