This is an amazing organization that helps and supports parents and kids to bring to a another higher level. My family had attended a lot of classes arranged free of cost by them that helped my family to understand better of the schools and benefits in Texas. Mary and Judy went out of their way to help us a lot. Thanks a lot to them and my salute to their dedicated services.

I have two special needs grandchildren. Skyler is 11 years old with autism and ADHD. Brook is 6 with cerebral palsy, epilepsy and intellectual disability. Family to Family network made tickets to Lil Rustler available to both girls in 2016 and they had a wonderful time at the kids rodeo with their assigned cowboys and then we went to the actual rodeo and concert that evening. It was a wonderful night out and a true break for my daughter to be able to just sit and enjoy what the girls were doing. In 2017 Skyler had aged out of Lil Rustlers, but Family to Family again sent tickets for all of u and we went and watched Brook at the little kids rodeo and then went to the actual rodeo and concert. Brook loved her cowboy and all the special kid events and Skyler had an amazing time at the concert. Family to Family is a wonderful organization that made all of this possible and all of their people are very kind in dealing with the kids and parents.
As a professional serving adults with disabilities after they transition from school, I am thankful for Family to Family for providing trainings and resources.
Family To Family is a valuable resource for my family! I am so thankful for the volunteers who share their stories and train and guide us parents on this journey of parenting a child with special needs. I tell so many parents about this great organization and how they want to help us parents navigate the school years and transition to adulthood.
Family to family has made me feel welcome and supported. So many times I felt alone in my journey trying to know how I can help my son reach his goal in life. Now I know I am not alone. Having the opportunity to meet so many other mom's and see what they gave done to support their children with disabilities, has inspired me to continue and never give up. Thank you Family to Family for giving me hope and showing me it's possible to make a difference. All the training you provide has open my eyes. Thank you for your support to the communityand everything you do.
I had the questions for my son's ARD meeting and called Family to family network. They helped me clear the issue, emailed me the sample letters. It is great help for me to advocate for my son.
My son moved to foreign country at age of 3, grew up there, just came back recently. He is 20 years old. He just got admitted to school, but the evaluation takes time, he won't be able to go to school until fall. We do not know what is the next and what we do can now. The presenter's personal experience game me a clear picture where to start and what we can do and where to find help. The seminar is very informative and helpful for us. Thank you very much!
Today's placement class from Ms. Mary Jane is very helpful, it helps me to understand the procedure to decide placement, i am looking forward to joining your future class!
Thanks and Best Regards,
Family to Family Network provides much needed support for us, parents and caregivers, navigating this marathon life of parenting a child with special needs. I am always greeted with a warm welcome and a listening ear. Their own personal experiences make the training sessions very informative and helpful as I navigate transition planning for my 15 year old daughter. Many thanks to these wonderful people!!
