Support

Supporting You and Your Family

Families As Allies can provide support for your family, listen to your concerns and and explain the service options and help that is available to you. We have staff who are available to accompany you to meetings and appointments, interpreting and facilitating the flow of communication between you and the professionals and agencies that provide services to your child.

We can help you understand your child's educational options and navigate through the sometimes complex and confusing educational system. We can coach your family, teaching you how to advocate for yourselves, and work with you to promote personal leadership skills that can be used on behalf of your family and your child.

 

Families as Allies is funded through generous donations, training fees, grants from the Substance Abuse and Mental Heath Services Administration, the City of Jackson and the Department of Mental Health, and contracts with other non-profits and agencies.
