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
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!
