Help and Hope: From Families who have Walked the Walk
Voice and Vision has distributed 5000 copies of our first guide!
Being a family with a loved one who has challenges is difficult. We have heard many times: “if only I knew then what I know now.” This guide—written by families for families— shares what we ‘know now’ in the hope that we can help you navigate services, identify resources, and establish the right supports for you and your family. In Help and Hope you will find information, helpful suggestions, and accounts from families reflecting upon their own journeys. Help and Hope puts the wisdom of decades of family experiences into your hands.
New copies of this guide are no longer available, but you might find copies in the community.
Please stay tuned for an updated reprint!
First Help and Hope Guide Testimonials
“The Voice & Vision Resource book is a masterpiece…and I don’t use that term lightly! The format, attention to detail, variety of subjects, careful organization, personal accounts, and thoroughness of topics, etc., etc., are so well coordinated and completed! In a way, it reads like a novel, but in so many distinctive ways, it is an essential resource, which, I predict, will outlive many previous (and future) attempts at such a gathering. Well done! Best of future experiences going forward.”
“First –let me say I LOVE the book. I have been reading it & learning things I didn’t know after 12 years at the job!!! So thank you for doing this.”
