Finding out your child has a special healthcare need or disability can be stressful and overwhelming. Family Support Network of Southern Piedmont gives families the tools they need to become more confident in raising their child with special needs. Last year, we served over 800 families by providing one-to-one parent support in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, information, referrals, support groups for parents and siblings, parent to parent matching, trainings and workshops, and social events for children with special needs such as Cookies with Santa and the Summer Splash Celebration.
