Our Team

While Family Voices’ core team of staff and consultants live and work from across the country, our national office is located in Concord, Massachusetts. Together with our network of Affiliated Organizations and our many funders and partners, our team is deeply committed to transforming systems of care to work better for all children and youth, especially those with special health care needs or disabilities.
