Our Values

The Family SHADE believe in the provision of supports and services to families of children with special healthcare needs that foster (1) empowerment and not dependency; (2) equity and equality; and (3) an individually defined quality of life. In addition, caregivers must be viewed as experts in regard to their children within a context of self-determination and family culture.
 
Our Mission

Delaware’s Family SHADE is a collaborative alliance of family partners and organizations committed to improving the quality of life for children and youth with special health care needs, and their caregivers, by connecting families and providers to information, resources and services; advocating for solutions to recognized gaps in services; and supporting its member organizations.
