Work One on One with a Family Support Partner (FSP) Who Understands
We understand the isolation parents may feel while raising a child who is struggling because we've been there. Parents and caregivers report that during particularly difficult moments, they feel even more alone. But it doesn’t have to stay that way. The PA Parent and Family Alliance is here to help.
You can talk with your FSP about your worries and concerns surrounding your child’s struggles, receive input on balancing your personal and family responsibilities, guide you in identifying and finding appropriate services in your area and/or for a specific diagnosis or appropriate assistance.
Need someone to listen? You your Family Support Provider as a sounding board who will listen as you talk through whatever you are worried about. Our Family Support Partners get it. They use their training and real-world experience of raising a child with challenges to guide you to the right solutions and support for you and your family.
We offer a variety of ways for you to connect one on one remotely with an FSP. Call our Parent Support Line, schedule a time to talk with us or send us an inquiry form and one of our FSP's will call you back. Whichever way works best for you, our services are always free and confidential. There’s no obligation to commit to talking with someone for a particular length of time.
Not sure if we can help? Contact us anyway. If we can't help, we'll work with you to find someone who can.
*Please note: The Parent Support Line is not a crisis line. If your question or situation is urgent and requires immediate assistance or support, please dial 911.
What's it like to work with a Family Support Partner?
"Talking with my FSP helped me realize that there are many parents like me who struggle every day to care for children with anxiety or ADHD."
"Being able to talk to someone who 'gets it' can be very powerful in validating the overwhelming feelings that you have when living with someone who struggles with their mental health. I'm glad that I reached out."
"Working with an FSP allowed me to be supported by someone who understood what I was going through and helped me prepare for our IEP meetings and really get the services my child living with depression needed to learn."
