Family Care Enhancement Project (FCEP)
The FCEP Info Series, provided by the UNMC Munroe-Meyer Institute, offers presentations on topics important to individuals with disabilities, their families and caregivers.
The Family Care Enhancement Project (FCEP) places parent resource coordinators (PRCs) in medical clinics to provide information and support to families that have children with disabilities and special health care needs. This purpose of this informational series is to empower families and connect them to community resources.
