Become a State Liaison

State Specific Resources

The State Parent Liaison Project is a new model of collaboration to improve the Foundation’s outreach to both families and professionals at the national level.  The position will be used to build relationships, network, collaborate and disseminate information.

The primary function of a State Parent Liaison is to:

  • Share the latest CHARGE resources with the State Deaf-Blind Projects and the families
  • Assist in helping both the Foundation and the State Projects in identifying families
  • Update the Foundation on available state resources
  • Promote connections among the CHARGE families in the state
