Family Advocacy

Family Peer Advocates are credentialed parents and caregivers who have walked their own journey with their children involved in the various systems of care. Family Peer Advocate services are an array of formal and informal activities and supports provided to families caring for and raising children who are experiencing social, emotional, medical, developmental, substance use, and/or behavioral challenges in their lives, homes, schools, and/or community. Family Peer Advocate services provide a structured, strength-based relationship between a Family Peer Advocate and the parent/family member/caregiver for the benefit of the youth.
