History of Parent to Parent Network
In September, 1998 a group of parents and staff from Health and Human Resources met to prepare a grant to fund Parent to Parent Network. Through these efforts a grant application was submitted and accepted for the development of a family organization in Region IV.
In May of 2000, Parent to Parent Network received their 501(c)3 status and became incorporated as a non-profit organization. Since then, Parent to Parent has expanded their staff to include an Executive Director, Family Coordinator, Family Care Partners and a Wrap Fidelity Index Evaluator.
Parent to Parent Network is a non-profit organization created by and for families that reside in Northeast Nebraska and who are raising, or are primary caregivers for, children with behavioral/emotional challenges including social, emotional, mental, substance abuse and gambling.
We believe children and their families can be successful and families/caregivers are the experts on their children’s needs and should be the main-decision-makers for their children. We understand the struggles and barriersn that parents face when accessing services and supports for their children in schools, the “system” and in their own communities because we too, have children with unique needs. We understand the importance of being able to talk to a nonjudgmental person who understands the challenges we face at home, with schools and in the community. We are dedicated to strengthening and empowering families by providing access to resources, support, advocacy and education.
To provide effective peer support services to children and families in Northeast Nebraska, and to empower families to embrace life in a positive, whole and self-valuing manner.
