Family Support Specialists draw on their lived experience to serve and support children and families facing challenges associated with emotional, behavioral, or mental health needs. The Coalition celebrates the power of peer support, focuses on the needs of family support specialists, provides support, training, job opportunities and provides an arena for your collective voice.
The Family Support Specialist Coalition, led by Tennessee Voices for Children with support from the Healing Trust, is a coalition to promote statewide connection and resources sharing among Family Support Specialists.
