Welcome, this site is for you whether you have a child with special needs, or want to learn more about how to help families of children with special needs. We are a Christian non-profit designed to offer services to families who have a child or children with a special need(s).
Project Proud families, Inc.’s mission is to provide advocacy, support, and education, to families that have a child with “different abilities”. As well as, to educate the communities in which our families live.
We offer this by:
Providing IEP workshops biannually to parents, child care providers, and EC personnel.
Partnering with our local school system to create a support meeting monthly that will enable parents to have the tools they need for success in their child’s education.
Forming a coalition of providing agencies in partnership with the Chatham Orange Resource Connection to create more effectual services for our families called “The Continuum of Care”.
Providing referral services and support to families that need information or help in a particular area with their child.
Host and participate in community events to raise awareness
Free Medical Advocacy in the form of “ask the pharmacist”, and “ask the nurse”.
Educational workshops/Button Challenge- An educational forum and then challenge that takes place at the end. Would you wear a button that says, “I have a special need, SO WHAT” for a whole week? If no, or you would feel uncomfortable, then why??
