At Parent to Parent Family Support NetworkTM-High Country, we believe that all children have abilities and gifts to give.

Parent to Parent Family Support NetworkTM - High Country provides free support, caring connections, information and hope to families who have a premature baby, a child with a disability, an emotional or behavioral challenge, a mental illness, a chronic health condition or to families who are grieving the death of a child.

We provide information to help families see the possibilities for their children, and tools so that they can turn that potential into reality.
