In Our Opinion: Cheers



To Family Resource Network for 20 years of helping local families of special-needs children.

The organization was founded by parents to meet the needs of special-needs individuals and their families. It plans special events in addition to providing a variety of regular services to the 3,000 people it serves in Broome, Chenango, Delaware, Otsego, Tioga and Tompkins counties.

The organization, which offers some free services, is largely grant-funded, Executive Director Meghann Andrews-Whitaker said.

“Every single person that comes to us has their own needs,” Andrews-Whitaker said, and through the various programs it offers, “we try to help them get the services they need,” including residential family peer support, topics related to autism, and a resource center.

The Family Resource Network is a valuable asset to our community, and we congratulate it on its anniversary.
