Parent Center Information

Parent Network of WNY is the Family and Community Engagement (FACE) Center for Western New York, funded by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) to promote meaningful family involvement within the educational system, build collaborative community relationships, and provide information and training about available service options and delivery systems for children from birth to age 21.

Additionally, we are funded by USDOE to operate a Community Parent Resource Center (CPRC) in Western New York offering direct support and training to young adults, families, and organizations, primarily for Spanish-speaking communities.

We are also a part of the RSA-funded Real Transition Partners – alongside Starbridge, SPAN Advocacy, IncludeNYC, and Federation for Children with Special Needs – leading a collaborative of 26 parent centers providing young adults with disabilities and their families with post-secondary transition-related information and support across the Northeast and Caribbean.
