The EPR project lead team has convened a group of PA-based key partners to provide crucial support to project development and implementation.
- Parent Education & Advocacy Leadership (PEAL) Center
PEAL works with families, youth, and young adults with disabilities and special health care needs to help them understand their rights and advocate for themselves. PEAL’s services are provided at no charge to families as they are funded by private donations and federal, state, and private grants.
- Hispanics United for Exceptional Children (HUNE)
HUNE works to improve educational outcomes for children and youth with all disabilities (emotional, learning, mental, and physical) from 0-26 years of age. HUNE is a non-profit organization that provides free bilingual (English and Spanish) programs, supports, and services on all aspects of special education.
- PA Emergency Medical Services for Children (EMSC)
The Federal EMS for Children Program is designed to ensure that all children and adolescents, no matter where they live, attend school, or travel, receive appropriate care in a health emergency. Since its establishment in 1985, the EMSC Program has provided grant funding to all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories.
