The Family to Family Network (FtoFN) is a statewide parent support network run by volunteers. It is designed to educate, strengthen, and support families of persons with disabilities, especially those who are on the waiting list or are in services with the Division of Services for People with Disabilities (DSPD). Network leaders are parents of individuals with special needs and link families to local resources, services, and disability-friendly events. The FtoFN is a project of the Utah Parent Center.
They can help you by providing:
- support through local monthly meetings, either in-person or online
- information and referral
- family to family support
- advocacy for families
- help to families who qualify or may be eligible for services from the Utah State Division of Services for People with Disabilities (DSPD), and help to understand programs and services and how to work with service providers and support coordinators.
