    Family Advocacy Resources, Inc. was developed in 2005 by
    Randi Solomon, the
    parent of three children with disabilities and a grassroots group
    of individuals,  who envision a world where people with
    disabilities can achieve their own highest personal level of
    independence through self-advocacy. Our purpose is to educate
    people with disabilities and/or their caregivers on how to
    navigate systems and access community services such as
    transportation, housing, education, employment and recreation.

    Mrs. Solomon started advocating in 1987, when her first son was
    initially diagnosed with a severe expressive/receptive language
    disorder. Two years later, he son was diagnosed with High
    Functioning Autism. Her other two children were diagnosed with
    disabilities as well. Using techniques learned at various
    trainings, Mrs. Solomon became a “support parent” through
    “Parent To Parent.  She became an active volunteer advocate
    for her children, and for other children and their parents
    throughout the area. Her philosophy has always been that if it
    were not for others helping her in the community, her children
    would never have received the help that they needed. Her wish
    is to “pay back” the community for all the help she has received
    and to “pay forward" all that she has learned.

    Recently, Frances Corgnati, M.S., joined FAR as Co-Director.  
    Ms. Corgnati comes to us with a vast array of professional
    educational experience. Her accomplishments include; grant
    writer for various institutions; member, Mass. Teachers'
    Association (MTA) Board of Directors; Academic Programs
    Coordinator, University of Mass. Amherst, and Middle School
    English teacher.  She was co-owner and administrator of  a
    family-owned international business in West Africa, where she
    lived for many years. She is bilingual (English/French) and brings
    a unique understanding of cultural diversity.

    Challenges with education, transportation, Social Security,
    housing, and assistive technology can be frustrating to navigate.  
    Family Advocacy Resources teaches people with disabilities
    and/or their caregivers how to find a path through all these
    challenges. We assist people with disabilities to achieve and
    maintain their highest level of independence through knowledge
    and self-advocacy.  FAR requests clients to “pay forward” the
    help they have received by helping others in similar
    circumstances.

    Our clients come from all walks of life, crossing all economic and
    cultural barriers.  We may not always have the answers, but we
    work to help find  solutions so our clients can find the right path
    to knowledge and self-advocacy. We believe that to be an
    advocate is to be knowledgeable on how to use self-advocacy
    techniques to achieve goals.  

    Family Advocacy Resources is committed to helping you go
    FAR in life!
