Our Mission

Family Forward Advocacy CT (FFACT) is dedicated to supporting parents raising children impaired by Complex Developmental Trauma (CDT), attachment disruption, and those formed through adoption.


FFACT advocates for parents, develops parent partnerships, and strives to strengthen family integrity practices across child-serving systems. We build awareness of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and the impact of attachment disruption on children and their families, and we empower the voices of parents committed to both parenting through trauma and advocating for change.


Parents Parenting Thru Trauma knows how hard and often dangerous it can be to support, contain, and keep traumatized kids safe. If you found us, you know what that journey feels like. Our mission includes building you up, giving you tools, and making sure you know you are not alone.
