Review for Family To Family Network, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Over the years Family to Family Network has provided so much support to families in Texas affected by disability. Many years ago, my world was changed as I was honored to participate in their Disability Leadership program. It changed my views on the potential roles of people with disabilities in all walks of life and made me realize I needed to view my son, and so many others, through the same lens we view all people -- with a focus on what they can do and the supports they might need to live a fulfilling life of purpose.

We have had many bumps in the road, most recently being displaced from our home by floodwaters of Hurricane Harvey. Again, F2F was there for us providing direct support as well as vital guidance and emotional support. Certainly my son's trauma has been made less due to the generous help of F2F and their partners in the Hurricane Harvey recovery.

I strongly endorse Family to Family Network as an organization that leverages all their resources to provide maximum benefit to Texans with disabilities.

I am including a recent picture of my son with autism enjoying some of the items provided by F2F and their partners to alleviate stress. As you can see, he is pleased!

Review for Family To Family Network, Houston, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

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