Because every family matters.


Because every need is special.


One day at a time. Together.


We can help.

Dedicated to Our Mission

Maine Parent Federation bringing the power of knowledge and voice to families of children/dependents with special needs assisting in opening the gateway to systems of care.

"This is exactly what we needed. Navigating the system is so hard. We are now getting the services we need and our child is catching up in school. We have a long road ahead but we are hopeful we are on the right path."


"I am more confident in my own ability to navigate the system now."


"I’m very happy with the help and support I received to get my daughter what she needed. I am grateful for all the info I received, MPF helped me immensely to feel confident.”


"People always told me what to do, but they never asked me what I said I should do. When I was given a say, I excelled exponentially."

Young Adult with a Disability

"Thank you for all that the Maine Parent Federation does to support families of children with disabilities and youth with disabilities in Maine!"


Expectations were for 45 students to attend, but well over 75 students attended! … Thanks to the Maine Parent Federation for sponsoring this event!
