The Family Leadership Development Institute (FLDI) is a collaborative initiative that was created to develop a network of family leaders in Rhode Island to make a positive impact on schools, communities and in health care arenas. FLDI offers workshops, training, support, and networking opportunities to anyone who wants to become a leader.
The Family Leadership Development Institute provides support, training, and networking opportunities for the development of family leaders in Rhode Island. Family leaders include parents and individuals who lead peer involvement efforts in schools and communities; parents of children / youth with special healthcare needs; family members or caregivers of people with disabilities; and / or consumers with disabilities, chronic conditions or special healthcare needs who provide peer assistance, either as a paid employee or a volunteer -
The vision of the Family Leadership Development Institute is that family leaders in RI will have the consistent training and the support they need to provide peer assistance; and effectively advocate for person/ family centered care at the individual, local, systems, and policy levels.
