PHP’s mission is to help children and adults with special needs receive the support and services they need to reach their full potential by providing information, training and resources to build strong families and improve systems of care. They envision a world where communities are not afraid of differences. A world where families are not overwhelmed by the challenges of parenting a child with special needs. A world where there are adequate community resources for all families. This world will include and embrace all people with special needs. Their lives and the lives of their families will be filled with hope, fun and meaningful opportunities that reflect an optimism and sense of security about the future.
