at the center of children’s health care!

Family Voices is a national family-led organization of families and friends of children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and disabilities.  We connect a network of family organizations across the United States that provide support to families of CYSHCN.  We promote partnership with families at all levels of health care–individual and policy decision-making levels—in order to improve health care services and policies for children.
