Become a Family Peer Advocate (FPA)

Family Peer Advocates are valuable professionals within the child serving system. They are uniquely qualified to work with families based on their first-hand experience as the parent/caregiver of a young person with a social, emotional, behavioral, health, or developmental disability. This experience, combined with additional Parent Empowerment (PEP) training, allows them to provide peer support to parents of children with similar challenges.

NYS System of Care Framework

The Systems of Care (SOC) Framework is a coordinated network of services and supports that are organized to meet the physical, mental, social, emotional, education, and developmental needs of children and their families.

Building Systems of Care, by its own designation as “systems” and not “system,” requires cross-system partnerships with the common goal of developing a broad array and continuum of services and supports that are infused with the values of:

  • Family Driven & Youth Guided
  • Community-Based
  • Cultural & Linguistic Competence

Systems of Care refer to the collaborative, coordinated infrastructure within a community to meet the needs of children and families so they can achieve their own definition of success and equitable outcomes.

Systems of Care are implemented at both the systems level (policy, financing, management) and the service/support delivery level.
