The Family Support Network of Eastern NC offers a variety of services for families of children with special needs.  No matter where you are on your journey we are available to assist you.

Parent-to-Parent Matching: Sometimes, the best support comes from someone else who has “been there.” Research has proven that families raising children with special needs benefit significantly from the support of other parents in similar situations. Through our matching program, you can talk with a trained volunteer Support Parent who is raising a child with similar needs and challenges. Our access to state- and nationwide networks enables us to locate family matches even for rare conditions or situations.

This is for parents of children ages birth to 18.

Scrapbooking: For parents at Vidant Medical Center who have a child in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, or mom’s on bed rest at risk for a premature delivery.   Each Wednesday at 11:00 a.m.  Contact 252-847-0192

Support Parent Training: Throughout the year FSN-ENC provides a free training for parents who would like to volunteer to talk with other families in a similar situation.  Trainings are normally held on a Saturday from 9 a.m. until 2.  Call 252-328-9332 if you are interested in more information.
