Mission Statement

Texas Parent to Parent (TxP2P) supports children with disabilities, chronic illness, and other special health care needs by empowering their families to be advocates for them through peer support, resource referral, and public awareness.

Description

Texas Parent to Parent (TxP2P) provides support and information to families through staff who are also parents of children with disabilities or chronic illness and/or through one-on-one matches with trained Supporting Parent Volunteers. We provide information on resources and programs, funding sources and insurance and anything that will help support a family remaining intact with their child at home with them.

TxP2P provides trainings for professionals and parents across the state through our federally funded Family to Family Health Care Education and Information Center. We provide a Medical Education Program for Pediatric and Family Practice Residents using Family Faculty to help them understand the global impact of a child with a disability on a family. We are working on Respite and Transition Programs.

TxP2P also provides an annual parent conference and a quarterly newsletter.
