Our Impact

Research. Results. Outcomes.

Our programs and processes make a difference to the children and families that we serve. We conduct research to confirm that our programs address the unique needs of parents, children, and families. Additionally, we contribute to the growing body of research focused on peer support, children’s mental health, and family-run organizations.

“She gave us confidence as parents and taught us how to be advocates for ourselves and our son. She gave us emotional support and told us that we were good parents. She educated us about the IEP. She offered us hope that we could do it.”

“As a single parent it’s good to have someone who’s knowledgeable about IEPs and other services. Sandy’s been a pretty strong advocate. She does a great job. I wish I would have known about WFT when my daughter was younger, when she first got her IEP.”

“Without Wisconsin Family Ties, I would have no support person, no one to help me advocate. I wouldn’t be where I am today.”
