Moving the Federation Forward
The Federation is forward-thinking, and funds donated to our general fund will help drive our work in critically needed areas. We are a parent-powered organization, and our eye is always on the instrumental role of the family in ensuring student success.
In the upcoming years, the Federation will focus on ensuring information is made available to all of our communities. This will include much-needed investments in technology, translation, and media access. Donated funds will help us increase access to critical information, resources, and training opportunities for racially, culturally, and linguistically diverse families. Family independence is our goal from our first contact with a family through intervention and coaching.
Family engagement is the key to all that we do at FCSN. Utilizing an equity lens, donated funds will help FCSN drive family-led solutions to challenges faced by historically marginalized students in school. FCSN helps schools provide an environment that encourages and promotes collaboration with families. FCSN will continue to help bridge divides so that partnerships between schools and families will help children thrive.
Family Leadership Development
Investment in parent and caregiver leadership will help us to foster leaders in the home, school, and community. FCSN will focus on how processes and practices in education and healthcare exclude linguistically diverse families. We will nurture individual families’ self-expertise, help them discern their leadership goals, and leverage their lived experience to help them become leaders in their community.
Early in the Federation’s work, its founders sought to pass legislation, change systems, challenge perceptions of access to education and healthcare, and advocate for parents and guardians. Still, generations later, our work continues to ensure that the community has access to the tools, services, and resources needed to ensure that children with disabilities have access to equitable services tailored to their needs.
Our mission and work are further strengthened each year through the generous financial support of dedicated, thoughtful partners like you. As an investor in our work, you know your gift’s impact on parents like Juliana. Your gift will empower us to expand our footprint and reach through education, resources, and outreach.
Your continued financial investment will ensure that we continue to:
- Bring the PCTI series to the Portuguese and Vietnamese communities.
- Create trainings focused on Social-Emotional, trauma, and bullying in response to the needs of our families.
- Provide access to our new multicultural School Finder hotline in 250 languages.
We hope that as you and your family plan for end-of-year donations if resources allow, you consider renewing your gift. No matter the amount, your contribution can change someone’s life.
Be that change for someone TODAY.
