CMSU Parent to Parent is a support program for families that have
children with special needs. We serve Columbia, Montour, Snyder
and Union Counties within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Services are free
The Program offers information, referrals, resources
and parent matches. Parents are matched with a mentor parent who
has a child with a similar situation. This type of support is unique
and cannot come from any other source. It is comforting for parents
to realize they are not alone and to know that other parents are
going through what they are experiencing. Research shows, families
that are matched with mentor parents early on are 80% more likely
to accept and cope with their situation and find resources better
than families not matched.
Families that have children of any age and any diagnosis are welcome
to call. Matches can be made for physical disabilities, mental retardation
or any mental health condition.
