The FACT Family Network, a project of FACT, recognizes that the greatest resource we have is families themselves! By investing in the capacity, strength, and expertise of parents of children with disabilities in Oregon, we empower families to stay healthy, raise resilient children, and maintain a high level of involvement in their child’s education. The FACT Family Network promotes:


  • Strength-based parenting approaches
  • Connecting families to existing supports
  • Increasing community capacity
  • Reducing the isolation experienced by many families
