Partnering with people with disabilities and/or their families by supporting their efforts to realize their dreams and achieve their goals
Realize Your Dreams!
Triad First In Families (TFIF), a chapter of First In Families of North Carolina, is a family support program that provides assistance to people with developmental disabilities and their families in Forsyth, Stokes and Davie counties. We help people find the resources needed to help them realize their dreams and meet their goals. Our goal is to do whatever it takes for people to live and participate fully in their community.
First and foremost we form a partnership with the people we serve to assist them in obtaining what they need to realize their dreams or achieve their goals. TFIF then partners with local agencies, businesses, and citizens by:
Making a referral to an appropriate agency. Broadcasting the need for items or services over our ?Dream Network? to seek a donation. The Dream Network is an e-mail network that calls on agencies, churches, civic organizations, businesses and interested individuals. Negotiating with companies to get the lowest possible price, if the item / service has not been donated. Bartering or exchanging goods/services for the needed item/service.
In order for everyone to be productive, contributing members of the community, we must all work together.
The mission of Triad First In Families, a chapter of First In Families of North Carolina, is to help people with disabilities and their families achieve their goals and realize their dreams. TFIF offers support to families and individuals in Forsyth, Davie and Stokes Counties according to their self-defined needs. Support may be achieved by connecting the individual/family to vocational, social, and educational opportunities in the community, seeking donations or discounts of needed items/services, or, in some cases, giving money toward the needed item/service. We do whatever we can to ensure that people live and participate fully in their community.
