Family Support Network of North Carolina
The Family Support Network (FSN) of North Carolina promotes and provides supports for families with children ages birth-22 years who have special healthcare needs, developmental disabilities/delays, and mental/behavioral health challenges across the state of North Carolina. FSN supports families as they navigate their world from their child’s birth, by providing information and support in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, through transitions to adulthood with workshops and educational opportunities to prepare families for the future. FSN programs utilize their staff’s lived experience as caregivers of family members with disabilities to prepare community families to access services and resources, gain information and skills, and become strong advocates for their children and families. FSN staff draw on lived experience to help families navigate systems, overcome barriers, and provide peer support.Visit The Website
