Rhode Island Parent Information Network (RIPIN)

Brief Description of Your Organization's Activities:: 

RIPIN’s vision is that individuals, parents, and families will advocate for themselves, ensuring that their needs for health, educational, and socio-economic supports are met. Their objective is to influence society’s view and value of families, diversity, and disabilities, reducing stigma, advocating for full inclusion and shifting societal perceptions toward acceptance of individual differences. RIPIN will work directly with organizations, institutions, and communities to address gaps and deficiencies so that, individuals, parents and families are better served and viewed as equal partners. They  envision systems that produce better outcomes for the individual, family, child and community.
