Who is a Parent Leader

What is the Parent Leadership Academy

The Parent Leadership Academy was developed by families for families. It is a place to come together to empower families with the tools, trainings, skills and supports to be a representative of the family voice at all levels of the System of Care and Agency Providers in either a direct or indirect way.
