Huntington’s Family Support Network began as a pilot program in 1985. This unique year-round parenting program for parents of all learning abilities places an emphasis on learning through a variety of approaches. The goal of the program is to improve family functioning and to help parents develop the skills, abilities and insights to successfully care for their children.
The Family Support Network program provides support and home visitation on an as-needed basis to pregnant/parenting adults. Group sessions take place three mornings a week and provide parenting education, basic life skills, information and linkages to other community programs. The group experience promotes peer support, fosters friendships and lessens feelings of isolation.
The Parents Advisory Board is a monthly group for parents with disabilities and parents who have children with disabilities who gather to support one another, discuss IEPs and CSE meetings, and learn about additional resources and services available in the community.
