Partnerships

Support for Families of Children with Disabilities actively collaborates with a variety of government agencies, nonprofits, and service providers to help develop more coordinated family-friendly services.  A list of our partnerships can be found below.  For more information about any of our partners, click the button under each description to visit their websites.

Aces Aware Logo

Support for Families partnered with the ACEs Aware initiative (ACEs are Adverse Childhood Experiences), to support training, provider engagement, and education activities for providers and organizations that serve Medi-Cal beneficiaries. 

Through our work, we recognize a need for more clinical research around the direct link between ACEs and the disability community, as well as a call to action to provide more funding for research to support ableism as a risk factor for toxic stress and to explore the intersectionality of ableism and racism.

The purpose of the CAC is to advocate for effective Special Education programs and services and advise the Board of Education on priorities in the Special Education Local Plan Area.  The State Education Code mandates that each SELPA have a CAC and that a majority of CAC members be parents.

Community Alliance for Special Education Logo

CASE is a collaboration with the Dept. of Human Services, the Children’s Council, Wu Yee Children’s Services, and SFCD to increase access to appropriate inclusive childcare for children with disabiliites whose parents are making transition from welfare to work.

Family Voices of California

Family Voices of California (FVCA) is a statewide collaborative of locally-based parent run centers working to ensure quality health care for children and youth with special health care needs.
