A recent article in the newsletter for Family SOUP, a local organization that works with families with children with special needs, is an example of how a supportive community works. The article highlighted a new board member, Sutter County employee Cynthia Martinez, who is a Resource Specialist at Sutter Yuba Behavioral Health Services.
Martinez said her brother and her family have received support from Family SOUP for several years, and she is so impressed with their positive impact on her family she has chosen to give back. That’s why she’s taking time out of an already busy life to serve on the Board of Directors of the organization. Great job, Cynthia.
Family SOUP is dedicated to supporting, encouraging and providing information and facilitated referral to help families with children with special needs navigate complex service systems. They offer a variety of programs for parents/caregivers and children. They believe in the power of parent to parent support and the role of parents as their child’s best advocate.
The Family SOUP mission is to empower families of children with special needs through support and education to reach their full potential as members of the community.
