REACh Families
Reaching East African Children and Families 
Families Raising Children with Special Needs

REACh Families is a support group for families in the Dallas/Fort Worth area raising children with special needs.Most families in the group are of East African origin. The purpose of the support group is to encourage, support and advocate for families and their children with disabilities. 

We feature monthly speakers to provide parents information to empower and enable them to effectively advocate for their children. It will also allow parents to share experiences, resources and support each other.

The REACh Families Outreach project is funded in part by the Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities (TCDD). TCDD awards funds from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: $9903 (75%) federal funds and $3340 (25%) non federal funds.

We are very grateful for their support in helping us accomplish our goals in reaching  out to more families in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
