When you support FFSN®, you provide better health outcomes for vulnerable families! You help ALL families receive the respectful, neutral, and compassionate care they deserve. You empower healthcare professionals to set aside personal bias and address unique patient needs in a sensitive manner.


In addition to educational services, Family to Family Support Network® connects hospitals and medical professionals with community resources to provide a network for families to utilize before, during and after delivery. I believe that the Unique Families Program® fills a critical gap in the hospital care model.

-- former House Representative from Colorado's Sixth Congressional District

Just thinking about the needs of unique families is a new perspective for me. I have never considered that the way we discuss motherhood/ intrapartum/postpartum care and the teaching materials we use could be disrespectful or noninclusive.

-- Sherree, RN

Becoming more knowledgeable about these unique family issues makes for better patient outcomes and saves money as a nation.

Background Statement

Family to Family Support Network® began as the Family to Family Adoption Support Network Program at Parker Hospital in Parker, CO in 2004. It was the first hospital-based adoption support program in the nation. The program evolved over 10 years, expanding from solely training hospital staff to better meet the needs of families during an adoption placement to becoming a community resource. The program began offering education to those considering adoption and post-adoption resources. As the community became aware of the program, organizations that encountered those facing unplanned pregnancy (i.e. OB Offices, schools) began referring women to the program. As such, expectant women were introduced to the program earlier in pregnancy. In most cases, these expectant women were still exploring the options of parenting or adoption. They received assistance with making a parenting or adoption plan and were connected to local community support networks for continued care and resources.

By 2015, it was clear that the Family to Family Adoption Support Program was expanding and filling the gaps in supporting the unique needs of women facing unplanned pregnancy before, during, and after delivery. It was also clear that the established care model could further expand to serve women and families throughout Colorado. To focus on sharing and expanding the care model into other hospitals and communities, the Family to Family Support Network was created as a pro-education, non-profit organization. Ultimately the care model expanded to other patient populations beyond adoption and surrogacy, such as those struggling with substance use disorder, incarcerated patients, and the LGBTQ+ Community.
