Welcome to Delaware Family Voices

Thank you for visiting the Delaware Family Voices and our Family to Family Health Information Center website.

Kids PlayingCaring for children with special needs is often complex, and Delaware Family Voices and the Family to Family Health Information Center is in the unique position to help. Like you, we are parents of children and young adults with physical, developmental and mental health challenges, and we have firsthand experience negotiating the maze of health care services and programs in our state.

We help families of children with special needs become informed, experienced, and self-sufficient advocates for their children and themselves. There is no charge for the services we provide. We are funded through federal grants.

This website provides families with valuable resources and information concerning children’s healthcare needs. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact us.

A Message from Ann Phillips, Delaware Family Voices Executive Director:

Welcome to the Delaware Family Voices website!

Spring has sprung! Soon crocuses, snowdrops and daffodils will emerge, the last of this year’s snow finally melted away. Much as you can rest assured that flowers will soon replace the snow, you can rest assured that Delaware Family Voices is here for you. We are but a moment’s phone call away, ready to assist you in the care of your child’s special health care needs. Don’t worry if you don’t know what to ask. We are here to listen, our objective to help you prioritize the steps you need to take as you plan a path for your child.

Spring is also a season of growth for Delaware Family Voices. We have added to our staff as well as to the programs we offer our families. We’ve added more training sessions for Parent to Parent, and expanded our support of the Federation of Families program. Check out our Trainings and Workshops page for a complete list of our ever expanding trainings and workshops.

We also continue improving and enhancing our website, and remain confident you will find it a valuable resource. And, if you have a resource you think we should consider including on the website, tell us! Our website is as much your website as it is ours

Check out our Events Page to keep up on our latest activities. And please don’t ever hesitate to call if you need us. Refer to the Delaware Family Voices Contact page for a complete listing of staff phone numbers and emails as well as our office address.

We cannot continue our growth without your help. Volunteers are the core of our organization. If you have time and would like to help, please give us a call.
