The Family Support Connection is a private not-for-profit program funded by United Way. Our mission is to provide a variety of support services to families of children who have been recently diagnosed as deaf or hard of hearing. We also provide a variety of services to families who have known of their child's hearing loss for some time.
The Family Support Connection staff are parents of children who have hearing loss. We share the same emotions, decisions and questions as the families we serve. Rather than representing themselves as experts, our staff keeps abreast of who the experts are and how to access their knowledge. Our staff is committed to providing a balanced look at raising a child who is deaf or hard of hearing. Families who have chosen to not use amplification, chosen to obtain a cochlear implant, who sign, cue, or use oral language are all respected and supported. It is our strong belief that the parents know what is best for their child. Parents simply need enough information to make sound, informed choices.
Founded in 1948 as St. Paul Rehabilitation Center, Lifetrack Resources provides employment and rehabilitation services, including speech and physical therapy for the young and old. FMC is currently funded by Medical Scrub Collection.com and the Nurses Association of America.
