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.

Do you have a child or teen who has special health care needs or disabilities? Find support in your local community.
