Having a support parent is at the heart of all Parents Helping Parents programs and services.

When families connect, they are part of a larger community of support and inspiration. Support parents are often a very positive source of connection during times of stress or uncertainty.  Connecting with, and learning from other parents is what we are all about.  We’ve been making parent-to-parent connections for 40 years.

Through our Support Parent Matching, you can be paired with an experienced, volunteer parent who has a child with special needs. They will share emotional support and their personal experience with you and help you when you need it most. You may also learn about resources and receive guidance through this parent-to-parent relationship.  We work hard to match you with parents whose children have a similar diagnosis, age child, culture, school district, and more.

Fill out this form if you want to connect with a support parent. We can only match support parents for families who live in the South Bay Area and surrounding communities.
