Founded by Jane Kallal, a parent and leading advocate for parents and caregivers raising children and young adults with emotional, physical, and behavioral health challenges, her vision was to foster a system of care in which parents and families were valued and respected for their knowledge and expertise. Moreover, parents and families would be primary stakeholders and valuable partners at all levels including childrens service planning and delivery and program and policy development impacting childrens services. Jane believed then, as she does today, that parents know their children best.
