Mission

To support a national network of Parent to Parent programs to ensure access to quality emotional support for families of individuals with disabilities and/or special health care needs. Parenting a child or adolescent with special needs is challenging. Parent to Parent support, the formal "matching" of a parent or primary caregiver with an experienced, trained Support Parent - someone who understands because they have "been there" - has been shown through research to be effective in helping families find the resources they need to navigate health and education systems and to access the support they need to experience the fullness of life in their community of choice.

Being a parent of a child with special needs can be a challenge — we’ve been there. The journey is filled with hills and valleys and sometimes feels a little overwhelming. So, we’re driven to ensure no parent feels alone. Ever. We do this by supporting a national network of Parent to Parent programs through hands-on support, training and technical assistance, and high-quality tools and resources.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Parent to Parent USA (P2P USA) aims to establish and support a national network of statewide organizations to facilitate Parent to Parent matches for every parent of an individual with a disability or special health care needs. In a Parent to Parent match, a Referred Parent, who is seeking an opportunity to share their parenting experience, receives one-on-one, high-quality, emotional support from a trained volunteer Support Parent who received training with an evidence-based curriculum.

Our strategies include:
- Providing corporate support and leadership development for statewide Parent to Parent organizations through technical assistance, webinars, and conferences;
- Developing a high-quality volunteer Support Parent curriculum to ensure adherence to evidence-based practices;
- Hosting a national matching listserv to facilitate complex matches; and
- Partnering with other national organizations for outreach and information dissemination.

We rely on:
- Expert parent leaders on our Board of Directors, national staff, and statewide organization staff. Beyond their management and family support expertise, the majority of our staff and advisors have personal experience with raising a child with a disability or special health care needs, which ensures that decisions being made remain relevant and compelling to those whom we serve; and
- Well-trained volunteer Support Parents across the country, representing diversity in family racial, ethnic, and social background, as well as disability and special healthcare needs experiences.

Highlights:
- Parent to Parent programs in 35 states;
- Every day, 24 parents are matched with a volunteer Support Parent; and
- 50% of parents are matched within 48 hours.

What’s next:
- Develop a corporate strategy/plan to recruit and support P2P USA volunteer efforts;
- Facilitate Technical Assistance for member organizations;
- Facilitate access to a Language Line to increase capacity for member organizations;
- Expand access: develop a national campaign to raise awareness of the benefits of parent to parent support;
- Expand access: facilitate culturally and linguistically appropriate training for volunteer parents;
- Expand access: facilitate modes of training to increase available trained volunteer Support Parents, starting with evidence-based online training curriculum for member organizations; and
- Collaborate with national partners to coordinate community education to all parents of children with a disability or special healthcare need.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
Policies and processes
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
