Respitality Program:

A "take me away" program that lets you get the rest and time away needed by providing family members with a free, one night hotel stay, gift certificate to a local restaurant and a movie pass.

Educational Programs:

Partners In Health works with Parent to Parent of Greater Manchester to provide free monthly workshops. Our goal is to provide families with the latest information on issues such as Medicaid, estate planning, Individual Education Plans (I.E.P.), effective advocacy skills, legal concerns, stress, and maintaining a balanced family life.

 

Family Council:

All families are invited to be part of the Family Council. The Family Council provides guidance and direction to the Partners In Health Project. The Council empowers families of children with chronic health conditions by giving them a forum and resources to make their needs, preferences, and concerns known to the community.
