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!!

When I was completely lost and had no idea to help my family with our special needs, Family to Family was able to provide me with resources and advice. I can't say enough great things about the people and services there.

I contacted Family To Family on behalf of a family in need. Leslie Lawson provided great resources and options for the family to consider. Family To Family can always be counted on to help families and their children with disabilities. They have been supporting families for many years.

Since the moment I moved to Houston, Leslie had been great help for me in identifying resources . I could trace Autism resources, schools information and attorney for guardianship easily with their help.
