Having a parent partner is at the heart of all Parents Helping Parents programs and services.
“The parent mentor is amazing and is helping me on a lot of topics. Thanks to you for connecting her with me. I am grateful.”
When families connect, they are part of a larger community of support and inspiration. Parent partners 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 Parent Partner Program especially for families with children 0-5 years, 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. This parent-to-parent support is for you, the parent. If you are primarily interested in looking for finding friends for your child, contact Parents Helping Parents at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can direct you to different inclusive recreational activities that would provide the opportunity for your child to make friends. If your child is older, and you are looking for connection, support and information, please also contact us at email@example.com. We are here for you!
