Richmond (Staten Island)
Welcome to the Staten Island Office of Parent to Parent of NYS
The Staten Island office is located at the Institute for Basic Research, in the Willowbrook section of Staten Island. In addition to a Parent to Parent of NYS Regional Coordinator, we also have a Family to Family Regional Coordinator, who provides support to families who have children with special health care needs and reside in the five boroughs, Long Island and Westchester. Our office is typically open Monday through Friday, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM. We have a Yahoo e-group where we disseminate and share information on local resources, events and other pertinent issues. Feel free to email or call us if you would like to join our e-group or if you have any questions.

Julia Luppino is a Regional Coordinator in the Staten Island office of Parent to Parent N.Y. State. Julia has been involved with the special needs community since 2007, when her son James was diagnosed prenatally with Down Syndrome and congenital heart defect. From her own experience Julia knows how important it is for families to know there is support available and that they do not have to face the challenges of being a parent of a child who has a developmental disability or special healthcare needs in isolation.
