Description

Our Family Experience Leaders will support ESP's family support programs and increase new family enrollment and education for families in our multi- county region. At ESP, we focus not just on our participants of all abilities, but the entire family unit. Families of a child with a disability often experience isolation and unique challenges that other families may not face; providing additional support for our families is crucial in fulfilling our mission each day. Our family support programs include: annual family camp at a fully accessible beach, monthly family dinners, onsite counseling and family workshops, new parent meetings, community outreach, and meeting our families where they are.

In fulfilling the objectives of our family support programs, the Family Experience Leader will: focus on reaching families of a child with a disability in low-income and rural communities by planning and implementing targeted outreach to schools, hospitals, and communities throughout the 26-county region ESP serves to provide program information and other family resources, serve as an advocate for ESP families and other families of children with disabilities, facilitate program enrollment for new families, lead and implement new family support resources and programs
