Organization Description: 

Support for Families of Children with Disabilities is a parent-run non-profit founded in 1983 with a purpose of ensuring that families of children with any kind of disability or special health care needs have the knowledge and support to make informed choices that enhance their children's development and well-being. Most of the staff members, volunteers, and board members are, themselves, family members of children with disabilities. Services include: a drop-in center, warm line, information and referral, support groups, peer to peer support, short-term counseling and case management, parent and child mentoring, workshops, trainings, Individual Education Program (IEP) consultations, and family special events. DCYF funds a Special Needs Project that provides information, education, and support for organizations to include children and youth with special needs in their programs and services.
