The Helping Parent program offers emotional support, community resources, peer mentorship, social connections through FUN family events, assistance in navigating complex health systems, educational opportunities and guidance to parents/caregivers raising children with special needs. Raising a child with special needs can be complex, isolating and overwhelming. As the connection for families caring for a loved one with special needs in our region, South Sound Parent to Parent is ready to lend support!
Our goal is to increase family strengths, enhance child development and ensure that families develop the resiliency to rebound from adversity and feel empowered and supported.
The Helping Parent program is for families caring for a loved one with special needs from
birth through their lifespan who live in Thurston and Mason Counties.
"When SSP2P's Helping Parent Transition Coordinator came to me in a parent/toddler group and asked me to think about becoming a helping parent, I was ecstatic! I was so excited and wanted nothing more than to help other parents who were going through life as a parent of a special child. I wanted and still want to make sure no parent goes through this alone."
