Navigator for Families with Special Needs

The Special Navigator for Families with Special Needs program offers free guidance and referral information to families that have children with special needs.  A Parent/Family Specialist assists families and professionals in locating programs, services and information by calling 330-747-KIDS (5437) ext. 244.  This service is available to Mahoning and Trumbull County residents.  The Respite and Summer Programs for Families with Special Needs document is available below.  It is updated each spring.  Please call for additional information.
