For families with children with special needs, parent-to-parent support has been shown to be invaluable. When given the choice for the types of support and services when facing a new diagnosis most parents respond that it is the help of others who have a child with special needs that is the most helpful. The literature on this topic provides clear evidence that parent-to-parent support is extremely helpful. The Long Beach Family Resource Center provides families with such support. However, the Long Beach Family Resource Center as well as other resource centers function on a low annual budget, which limits the number of support groups and parent matches that can be achieved. The goal of this project is to provide funding for the Long Beach Family Resource Center for staff time, which will allow more services to be provided. The submission and funding of this grant was not a requirement for this project.
