Wisconsin Family Ties


Wisconsin Family Ties (WFT) is a statewide, parent-run organization in Wisconsin working with families that include children with social, emotional or behavioral challenges. We walk beside families to provide emotional support while helping to navigate the complex service and treatment systems with which they are involved.

Description of Services

Wisconsin Family Ties Parent Peer Support Program links trained parent peer specialists (PPSs) with parents who, for a variety of reasons, need help and hope. Our PPSs are parents or primary caregivers of children with social, emotional, behavioral, or mental health challenges. They use their experience and training to help families navigate the complex systems that serve children. We offer a variety of training webinars for parents, and annually put on the Children Come First Conference.
