WarmLine Family Resource Center
Our mission is to provide information, education and support to promote and strengthen the foundation of families and children with special needs so they can face the challenges of the present and create new dreams for the future.
WarmLine Family Resource Center has been serving families since 1993 by providing information, education and support to promote and strengthen the foundation of families and children with disabilities or who are at risk for having disabilities or special needs. The Center also collaborates with and supports the community of professionals that work with and serve families with disabilities and special needs.
Staffed by parents of children with special needs, our staff are responsive to the needs and challenges of raising a child with special needs/disabilities.
Our guiding principles:
- All children with disabilities will live with a supported family and fully participate within their communities.
- Families are the best experts on what they need and the constant in their child's life.
- Services and supports should be flexible.
- Information should be available when parents need it and when it is relevant to their family and child.
- The family's needs will best be met when services and supports build on the family's strengths, respect cultural preferences, values, and unique lifestyles.
- Families and the community will benefit from the inclusion of people of all ages and abilities.
Each year WarmLine supports over 1000 families in Sacramento, Placer, Yolo, Nevada, El Dorado, and Alpine counties.
