We had Eric Wade visit us Thursday night to tell us about LINKS Mat Su Parent Resource Center
Who is LINKS?
We are a non-profit based in the Mat-Su Valley, Alaska that provides support and assistance to families caring for children and youth with special needs. LINKS Mat-Su Parent Resource Center is a private, non-profit, 501C(3) Alaska Corporation.
LINKS serves communities located within the Mat-Su Borough School District, including outreach to remote areas and villages, to provide support and training, parent-to-parent connections to mentors, information and referral, and access to library materials. These services are provided through one-on-one assistance and individualized workshops for small or large groups.
Children with disabilities make up 15% of the student population in the Mat Su, and LINKS can provide assistance to parents in need of some direction. Below are links to brochures and handouts Mr. Wade brought along.
