Partnering with Professionals

Families Helping Families enjoys partnering with professionals that support the families we serve.  These partnerships have proven to be extremely beneficial to the professionals, our staff, and most importantly, the families in need of services and supports.  When possible, FHF prefers to provide support to professionals through one of our grants and contracts.  However, occasionally we are requested to do specific things that we do not have funding to provide.  Therefore, we do offer the option to negotiate a professional fee to professionals and other groups that request something specific or closed to the general public.  A sample of these items are:


  • Specifically developed on a topic we don’t currently have in our training portfolio.
  •  Specifically for a closed audience group.
    • Teacher in-services
    • Disability specific support groups
    • Statewide conferences
    • Professional development


Conference and Event Coordination:

We all have different talents and not everyone is good at organizing events.  This is especially true when you have to think of the details involved in planning a meeting, conference, or other events. Partner with us to plan your next disability-related event.
