We are a ten year old statewide cross-disability, grassroots network that supports parents' and caregivers' efforts to help their children and adult family members with developmental disabilities.

PPCRN and its POWER Network help families to form local groups and to network with other parents in their regions and across the state. We promote inclusionary practices in all areas of life among families of children and adults with developmental disabilities.
