Here at Exceptional Family Resource Center we are committed to making a difference in the lives of families and individuals with disabilities and/or special needs. We realize the importance of advocacy and that individual and community involvement can effect change and influence positive outcomes. Laws that govern the delivery of services, policy and practices change all the time. Often these services are affected by budget shortfalls and/or changes in the political climate. Below you will find links to advocacy and legislative websites. We encourage you to educate your local, state and federal representatives about issues important to your family and get involved in the process. Let our voices be heard.
