What They Do:

Help over 1,100 families and their children with special needs every year. Parents learn how to help their vulnerable child and plan for an uncertain future by developing new routines and expectations, acquiring appropriate care and accommodations for their child, and learning how to promote acceptance in their family, school and community.

Children may have mild learning disabilities or profound cognitive impairment, allergies or illness, developmental delays that catch up quickly or remain entrenched, occasional panic attacks or serious psychiatric problems. When a child is diagnosed with a disability, families face a challenging journey.

ParentsCAN believes every child deserves to be loved and accepted as they are, to grow up healthy and be educated to reach their full potential. We provide comprehensive family assistance through one-on-one meetings with trained parent advocates and information about and referral to various local services. We sponsor regularly scheduled support groups and training sessions. ParentsCAN is here to help.


When my family was in full crisis, ParentsCAN welcomed me with open arms. Our problems weren’t too big for them. I received support and understanding with empathy and compassion. I could not have done it alone.
