Advocacy Tools

FVCA seeks to ensure that the voices of families of children with special health care needs are heard at both the State and Federal level when policies, votes, and decisions are made.

We encourage families, professionals, advocates and all those interested in the well being of children with special health care needs to write or talk to their elected officials about the policies and decisions affecting their children.

Who Are Your Elected Officials?
