FAMILY VOICES OF WISCONSIN is a statewide network of families who have children and youth with special health care needs and/or disabilities and those who work on their behalf.  The focus of our work is health care access, coverage and community supports and services for children and youth with disabilities and special health care needs.

We are an affiliate of the national Family Voices and we are the home to Wisconsin’s Family to Family Health Information and Education Network. We work closely with the Regional Centers for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs around Wisconsin to make sure families find the resources they need.      (To view this website in Spanish, use Traducela Ahora! , the free Spanish translation program)
