Our parent-to-parent matching (mentoring) is the foundation of our program. Family Support Network will be offering a support parent training on Wednesday, October 17th. When children are born prematurely or with a special need having someone to talk with who has “been there” makes all the difference in the world. It brings the comfort that only another parent can give.
The purpose of the workshop is to orient parents so that they may support others by helping them cope with the initial shock and day-to-day challenges they face. If you would like to help another parent by lending an ear through a difficult period, please join us to better prepare yourself for this wonderful volunteer position. We are looking for parents who have experienced everything from being in the NICU to a specific special need. You don’t need to be an expert on a subject – just a caring and listening friend.
Volunteers are always free to accept or decline a match based on their current schedules and availability. For more information, or to register, contact Jodi at email@example.com or 919-662-4600 ext. 257.
