About Family Voices of Tennessee
Family Voices of Tennessee, a program of the Tennessee Disability Coalition, provides emotional and educational support to the families of these children. To reach these families on what can be a lifelong, complex healthcare journey with their child, Family Voices of Tennessee has created a unique network of experienced staff and volunteers who have personal experience navigating the healthcare journey of an individual with a special healthcare need, chronic illness, or disability.
We serve families across the state of Tennessee and children across all ages and diagnoses.
We are focused on connecting, training and leading with the families we serve.
We connect families with each other, with community resources, with experienced parent mentors, with tools to navigate complex systems in healthcare and insurance, and more. Family Voices has hundreds of partnerships with local and national organizations, with reciprocal referral relationships and access to much needed information on resources available to the families we serve.
By training families, we are empowering them to advocate for the needs of their child and to lead in their local communities and beyond. In leading alongside these families, we are educating healthcare providers, policy makers, educators, and others on the improved outcomes from including, listening to and honoring the voices of these families.
