Our Family Support Navigators are experienced parents of children with disabilities or special healthcare needs in Maine who have navigated the many systems of care in their personal lives. Our Navigators are matched with families based on location and need to provide information and one-on-one support to families. Each Navigator uses their life experience and support from MPF staff to empower families when advocating for their child’s needs.
