The Oregon Family to Family Health Information Center provides information to families who are navigating the complex world of special health care needs. We are family members ourselves, who have first hand experience raising a child or youth with a chronic health condition, developmental delay or disability, or emotional/behavioral challenges.

Services Include:

  • Toll-free phone line (English and Spanish)
  • Comprehensive website with information and links to key special-needs services
  • Newsletters and tip sheets full of practical information written by families for families.
  • Regional Family Gatherings and trainings in communities all around the state.

There are 51 Family-to-Family Health Information Centers (F2F HICs) in the United States and territories. Each is unique, reflecting the needs and character of the community and state that it serves.
