I am a Family With Special Needs

Find the services and support you need to help your family with special needs overcome challenges and thrive.

Caring for a family member with special needs requires a unique set of considerations and additional responsibilities to fulfill your role as a caregiver and help your family thrive. This may involve seeking specialized child care services, managing medical care, navigating complex housing arrangements and managing financial strain.

You do not have to handle these challenges alone.

We can connect you to resources and services, workshops, warm handoffs, and ongoing non-clinical case management support to achieve goals based on the needs of your family.
