Support Parents Needed

Parent to Parent of NYS is looking for parents willing to help families who face parenting challenges similar to those you have faced.  Every parent of a child with a disability or special heath care need has experiences to share that will assist another parent or family.

Support Parents are the heart of our Parent Matching program.  We are always looking for new Support Parents in our area! If you are the parent of a child with a disability or special medical condition, please consider volunteering a bit of your time to offer support to another parent.

It doesn’t require much time and can make a difference in someone else’s life. Everyone has a story to tell--when you are willing to share yours with another parent please contact our office.
