Formerly Family Voices IN/About Special Kids. We provide answers and resources to families and professionals who are involved in the upbringing of children with complex medical conditions, mental health diagnoses and physical/intellectual disabilities.
Family Voices Indiana is excited to announce that we have promoted Kerry Bonney to Assistant Project Director. She will continue to support families in southern Indiana; but she will also coordinate our social media and match referrals to specialists. Kerry Bonney describes her role as an advocate as one that she has prepared for all of her life. From her work in the healthcare field for eighteen years to caring for her son with multiple disabilities, she brings her experiences to share with others in hopes that they will be educated and empowered to successfully campaign for the needs of their children. Kerry resides with her husband, Paul, in Seymour, and they have two adult children. Their daughter works as a music/choral teacher in Indianapolis, while their son resides at home. Kerry has worked in the field of advocacy for several years and currently serves at the president of The Arc of Jackson County. If you need resources or support, feel free to contact us at F
