Pennsylvania Parents
	 and Caregivers Resource Network

Purpose and Principles

We identify, support and link culturally and ethnically diverse parent groups around all areas of concern for parents of children with developmental disabilities. We build alliances and communicate and collaborate with other established networks, groups, parent organizations, agencies and systems. We value the integration of people with and without disabilties and the interdependence and enhancement of community among people of all races and backgrounds. We promote the use of generic community services and informal networks and the individualization, independence and personal choice of persons with disabilities.

Pennsylvania Parents and Caregivers Resource Network is funded by a grant from the Pennsylvania Developmental Disabilities Council through Resources for Human Development, Inc. for parents and family/friend caregivers of children and adults with developmental disabilities.
