Who is MPACT?

MPACT's staff and volunteers consist mostly of parents and family members of children with disabilities who have personal experience advocating for their own children through the special education process. In addition to personal experience, our staff and volunteers are trained in the special education process, IEP process, disagreement resolution, and effective advocacy.
MPACT Parent Mentors

MPACT offers people the opportunity to become leaders in their community. Through our mentor program, community members and parents are trained to help others successfully navigate the special education journey. Our mentor program not only offers the opportunity to help others but provides experiences that help our mentors feel more confident as they advocate for their own families.
