ND Parent to Parent, a project of Family Voices of ND is a statewide network of parents supporting families of children with developmental delays, disabilities, and special health needs.
As trained supporting parents, they offer emotional support and information, and act as a valuable resource to families. They offer assistance in learning the necessary skills to help parents face the challenges of raising their child.
They are not counselors or therapists. They are parents who have experienced the feelings and emotions that come after learning that our children have a developmental delay, disability, or other special health needs. They offer moral support and encourage parents to feel comfortable and optimistic about the future.
Parent to Parent is dedicated to supporting families at their most challenging times and to celebrating each new victory. Parents helping parents…it’s a simple concept that works.
