Families Helping Families of Greater New Orleans is a resource center staffed by trained, knowledgeable parents of children with disabilities or special health care needs.

Families Helping Families of Greater New Orleans incorporated in November of 1991. Because of our multiple funding sources, we are fortunate enough to provide services and support to every parish in the state of Louisiana. We are an IRS 501(c)3 organization that is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of 51% parents of children with disabilities. Donations are accepted and very much appreciated.

FHF of GNO is proud partners with numerous organizations, state offices, and others to offer a wide array to support and resources to families.  We are also part of a statewide network of ten Families Helping Families Centers. We are the only federally funded family-directed resource center in Louisiana that provides support for ALL disabilities and special health care needs.

FHF of GNO is unique because our support staff are all parents of children with disabilities or special health care needs or individuals with disabilities or special health care needs.  Because of their knowledge and through their experience and passion – they teach parents and professionals that support children and adults with disabilities how to navigate the complex service delivery system.  They know firsthand the challenges and obstacles and commit their time to teach other, less experienced parents, individuals, and professionals, what they’ve learned and what to anticipate.  Many parents tell us our staff is the first person ever to understand their daily challenges and rewards.  Often we are the ones that validate those initial feelings of confusion and help guide you early on and throughout periods of transition.
