Supporting Families of Children with Special Health Care Needs
Welcome to Delaware Family Voices
Receiving a diagnosis for your child can turn your world upside down. As a parent, you know you will do what is necessary to help your child. How do you know what your child’s needs are? Who will help you find the information?
Delaware Family Voices is a non-profit organization comprised mostly of parents who have shared similar journeys. We are here to help you along the path of your child’s own unique journey. We will share what we have learned. We will help identify available options and services. We will guide you in how to receive those services, enroll in programs, insurance, and anything else you may need to support your child.
You don’t have to learn everything all at once. We can help prioritize needs, explain terminology you may encounter, but unsure of the meaning. We will provide you with information, resources, emotional support and the comfort of knowing that someone else gets it.
You are not alone.
Delaware Family Voices is a non-profit organization. There is no charge for the services we provide, but we do accept donations.
