Children's Special Health Services 

Montana parent partner

Our Mission is…

To offer every Montana parent/caregiver of a child with special healthcare needs access to a relationship with a Parent Partner for the purpose of inspiring and encouraging hope by providing access to relationships, information, and resources.

We are dedicated to supporting families who have children with special healthcare needs and families with children that require care beyond what a typical child would require.  Parent Partners are personally experienced and professionally trained to help you navigate your family’s journey.

  • The emotions families wrestle with
  • Family members who might not understand
  • Healthcare challenges
  • School and special education processes
  • Transition planning of all varieties 
  • Advocacy Skills
  • Resource needs and more…  

Parent Partners journey with the family toward hope and best possible outcomes to help ensure all children have opportunities to reach their full potential.

Parent Partners are available to assist you wherever you are, and services are provided at no cost to you or your family.
