It’s been said that the happiest people are not those who get more, but rather those who give more!

We have had the honor to serve the disability community in the Greater Northshore for many years.
There is credence to the desire to want to help others especially when we ourselves have struggled with not knowing the answers to questions in times of hope and distress.

Northshore Families Helping Families. It’s who we are. It’s what we do.

Shanee Holmes

NFHF Board Member

“I have only lived on the northshore for the last two years, but I have traveled here since my oldest son was 2 years old to attend many workshops and events that Northshore Families Helping Families hosted. NFHF provided me with the support and knowledge that I needed during a very overwhelming time in my life. I am delighted to have the opportunity to give back to such an amazing organization now that I am a resident of St. Tammany Parish. Being an NFHF board member has given me the opportunity to work with the staff of NFHF and it has been a pleasure getting to know these dedicated individuals. It is also honor to represent and support a one-of-kind organization like Northshore Families Helping Families. If you are a parent of a child with a disability or an adult with a disability and you feel alone, please know that you aren’t. Reach out to Northshore Families Helping Families like I did eight years ago and your life will forever be changed for the better.”

Rohrbacker family received help on their IEP from Northshore Families Helping FamiliesWithout the help of this organization, I would never have been able to get my son's IEP or BIP properly established or followed up!

I encourage all who can to attend as many of the workshops offered by Northshore Families Helping Families as possible!

I am a retired Special Education teacher and I know the importance of families being formed and educated when it comes be being an effective advocate for their children.
