Family Voices, a non-profit organization, became a partner in the Bright Futures program in 1994. Family Voices’ Bright Futures initiatives address the health and well-being of all children, including children with special health needs. The Bright Futures philosophy, guidelines, and materials are widely respected and used by families, health care professionals and other caregivers across the U.S.
With a grant* from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Family Voices works to ensure that families are seen as essential partners in their children’s health and well-being. In addition, Family Voices works on Bright Futures activities with the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the National Center for Education in Maternal and Child Health (NCEMCH), and many other organizations.
With the Bright Futures for Families initiative, Family Voices is leading the way to meet the needs of families who want and need materials that have the same information used by their health care providers, but written in ways that they can understand and easily refer to when needed.
