Parent to Parent
Parent to Parent is an organization that provides emotional support and information to families of children and adults with special needs in Washington State. Local county coordinators organize parent volunteers (Helping Parents) who also have children with special needs.

Using their own experience and knowledge and specific training from Parent to Parent, these volunteers can assist your family with:
- Emotional support
- Current information on disabilities
- Information on community resources
- Parent and sibling support meetings
- Educational workshops
We would be happy to reach out to you, answer any questions you may have, or provide you with information or resources.
You may sign up for the Parent to Parent quarterly newsletter, visit their facebook page and attend trainings to become a Parent to Parent volunteer. In additional to supporting individual families, Parent to Parent organizes and conducts presentations to parent groups, professionals and other organizations.
ARC of Washington produces a monthly newsletter with helpful resources as well as information on statewide trainings and special events.
Our local chapter of Parent to Parent also produces a quarterly newsletter loaded with great information. Check out all our newsletters!
Parents may have questions and concerns regarding their child’s needs and their own feelings. Personal support from another parent, who has a child with similar needs, can be helpful in coping with these experiences and feelings. Volunteer Helping Parents are available to provide support and information.
