We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on equality in education. Our mission is to close the special needs achievement gap in education by providing parents, providers and advocates with a legal community to lean on and learn from.
By ensuring equality for everyone we are helping make the world around us a better, happier, more accepting place. With the help of our tireless professional and parent volunteers, we organize legal discussions, community-building events, and in-depth training sessions for parents, advocates and providers of children with special needs.
EACH ONE, TEACH ONE.
Are you a parent, professional or advocate for a child(ren) with special needs? Do you have personal or professional experience with advocating for a child's right to a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)?
If so, let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. We're excited to have you join the team!
"After so many years of disagreements with the District I was exhausted and didn't know what to do about my issues. As a parent, I could not sit and watch my child fall through the cracks of this system. I had to keep fighting. I was not going to give up on her since the District already did. When I found MovingMindsForward Foundation I learned I wasn't alone any more and they understood my frustration. Words cannot describe how thankful I am to have found Michelle. Through her guidance, her knowledge of he law and her love of helping people, I was finally able to get an out of district placement for my daughter. I am overwhelmed by this outcome. I cannot wait to see all of the drastic changes my daughter will make because she is finally going to get the help that she needs and deserves." Ada R., Somerset, NJ

A SIDE NOTE:
Due to the very sensitive nature of our work limited parent reviews are posted, programs are not recorded and minimal pictures are taken onsite. Maintaining a small social footprint is how we make family privacy our priority.
