Our Mission

Family Forward Advocacy CT (FFACT) is dedicated to providing invaluable support to dedicated parents raising attachment-disrupted and developmentally traumatized children and advocating for child welfare policy reform.

Our Vision

Through lived experience advocate representation, we believe parents are better prepared to develop parent partnerships with providers.  We strive 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.


Our podcast, 'Parenting Thru Trauma' explores just how hard and often dangerous it can be to nurture and maintain safety for traumatized kids. If you found us, you know what that journey feels like.


Our Purpose: Build dedicated parent resiliency, provide tools, and ensure parents know you are not alone.

Our Objectives

  • build awareness about the impact of early childhood trauma through direct service advocacy, social media campaigns, PR, and by generating feature stories

  • provide parent mentoring, coaching, and parenting strategies for bonding and safety

  • Offer a framework to support parents who desire to lead public policy change

  • educate the general public on the need for trauma competent services for kids and the experience of their parents

  • circulate information and connect parents in the trenches thru gatherings & networking

  • inform public policy to ensure respectful, responsive and trauma-competent services and providers are accessible to all

  • grow a collective parent voice informing change across the country
