Established in 1976 as a nonprofit agency, Parents Helping Parents, meets the needs of one of our community's most vulnerable populations – children with any special need and their families. This includes children of all ages and all backgrounds who have a need for special services due to any special need, including but not limited to illness, cancer, accidents, birth defects, neurological conditions, premature birth, learning or physical disabilities, mental health issues, and attention deficit (hyperactivity) disorder, to name a few.
