 Full Description: 
The Families United Network (FUN) is a community program of the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Research on Education and Human Development at Vanderbilt University. FUN is a volunteer-based free telephone support network designed to offer peer support and information to parents, siblings, or other caregivers who are providing support for adults with disabilities.

How does FUN work?

Callers are matched with trained peer partners who have experience in the areas in which the caller has concerns. Information and support is provided over the telephone.

Who are the peer partners?

Peer partners are:

-Current Vanderbilt Kennedy Center Community Advisory Council members
-Parents, siblings, or other family members
-Parents who have been the beneficiary of peer support and who have completed training
