Parent to Parent, a collaboration with the Family Support Center of NJ, is a statewide network of parents supporting families of children with developmental delays, disabilities, and special health needs.

As trained supporting parents, we offer emotional support and information, and act as a valuable resource to families. We offer assistance in learning the necessary skills to help parents face the challenges of raising their child.

We are not counselors or therapists. We 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. We 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's a simple concept that works.
