Mission Statement

To strengthen families who have children with developmental delays, disabilities or chronic illnesses through a parent-to-parent network of family-focused support to provide assurance, information, community awareness and enhanced parent/professional relationships.

Description

Family Connection is a support network for families who have children with special needs. Founded in 1990, we're here to help thousands of children in South Carolina reach their potential by providing parent-to-parent connections, linking families to community resources, and sponsoring a number of educational and support programs.

Our programs and services are centered around parent-to-parent networking, a program based in the principle that families with shared experiences are uniquely qualified to help each other. We match parents of children with disabilities with Support Parents who have children with similar conditions. These trained veteran Support Parents are an invaluable source of support and encouragement because they have faced similar challenges and celebrations.
