Family Voices of North Dakota

Family Voices of ND partners with families who have children with special health care needs to find resources and services that can help them navigate through the public and private health systems. Family Voices staff are also parents of children/youth and young adults with chronic health, physical, developmental and mental health challenges. Having a child with a disability can be overwhelming and exhausting, but Family Voices staff are here to help!

Project Carson supports families who have received a prenatal or at birth diagnosis. This program is sponsored by Designer Genes of Bismarck.

Parent to Parent is a statewide network of parents supporting families of children with developmental delays, disabilities and special health needs.
