Parent Leadership

Find one-on-one peer support from someone who’s been there. Our parent mentorship programs help you grow and give back.

Share Your Experience

Give back to families of children with disabilities and complex medical needs by providing support and leadership to others. Become a Parent Leader to provide mentorship to a family, participate on parent panels, connect with your community, and become an advocate for change in San Francisco, throughout California, and even nationally.

Sign up today and hear more about opportunities, training, and next steps.

Request a Mentor

Find support and guidance from someone who’s been there! Our Parent Mentor Program (PMP) is designed to match parents in need with a trained member of our community — a fellow parent with similar diagnosis or challenges to listen, share lived experiences, and connect with you one-on-one.

Request a mentor today and find the right support for your family.

Join a Support Group

Gather with a small group of parents and caregivers to share stories, learn about resources, and find support from others. Peer Support Groups are free opportunities to connect with other parents and caregivers. With many to choose from, join one group or more for a monthly group call or in-person meet up.
