Parent to Parent USA
At Parent to Parent USA, when someone asks what we do, we say we empower and support parents, nationwide. Why? Because we understand 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.
Alliance Members of Parent to Parent USA, like Oklahoma Family Network, follow best practices to ensure families never feel alone and are supported by parents of children/adults with special healthcare needs and disabilities. P2P Alliance Members, like OFN, promote access, quality and leadership within their states and nationally.
OFN is Oklahoma’s Parent-to-Parent Alliance Member
