What are Family Resource Centers?

Family Resource Centers are mandated as part of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). They are staffed by families of children with special needs and offer parent-to-parent support and help parents, families, and children locate and use needed services. They offer support services and resources in many languages, which may include newsletters, resource libraries, websites, parent-to-parent groups, sibling support groups, warmlines, and information and referral for parents and professionals.

WarmLine provides resources, support, training and consultation to families of children with special needs birth to age 26 in 26 counties of Northern California. WarmLine is staffed by parents who share the common experience of parenting a child with special needs.
