What We Do:
for Families provides consultation and therapy for families
whose child is suffering from a devastating illness. Our goal is
to meet families soon after they receive the diagnosis, either in
person or over the telephone. We provide nationwide assistance and
understand the importance of reaching out to families during this
difficult time, wherever they might be.
Families is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All of our services
are provided at no cost to families and professionals, with funding
provided by private donations. No federal funding is given.

is proud to announce two new Child and Family Specialists
who have joined our organization, Elva Tamashiro and Paula
Denney. Both Elva and Paula have been providing counseling
services to families whose child has been diagnosed with
a serious illness since January 2011. Their previous experiences
working with IFF's founder, Nancy Mansfield, have allowed
them to step in to very critical roles to support the
on-going mission of the Institute.
