The mission of Family Voices of Wisconsin is to advance comprehensive healthcare and community support based on family-professional partnerships and family-centered principles that assure the health and well-being of children and youth with special healthcare needs or disabilities and their families. The role of Family Voices of Wisconsin is to educate and promote the inclusion of these principles in the design, implementation, and delivery of support and services throughout Wisconsin.
Children are children first, regardless of their diagnosis. Support and services should be delivered with this in mind.
Families have great capacity to care for their children and youth with special health care needs and/or disabilities when they have informed real choices, strong supports and appropriate resources.
Health and community supports and services will respect and honor the unique culture and beliefs of families.
Children and youth are best served when their families work as partners with providers to make decisions about their health care and family supports, and children are supported within their community.
