Resources for Families


Family Resource Center (FRC)

The FRC is family information headquarters at Children’s Hospital. Families and medical staff can request a customized packet of information on a child’s condition that may include diagnosis methods, treatment, procedures, and planning. 

The FRC also maintains a Camp Directory on summer programs for children with chronic illnesses and disabilities. Many of the camps and programs listed are in the region. National camps serving children with chronic conditions are included for some specific conditions. We make every effort to keep camp and summer program dates and prices up-to-date.

Our services are free to the community, not just Vanderbilt patients. Family members can browse hundreds of books and videos on children’s health conditions, child development, and parenting in a quiet and comfortable setting or use computers for health-related research. Please stop by the Family Resource Center on the second floor of Children’s Hospital or call (615) 936-2558 to request a customized health information packet for you and your family. You may also ask your child’s doctor or nurse to contact us on your behalf.

Tennessee Disability Pathfinder

Pathfinder is a statewide directory of disability services and supports for any disability at any age. Tennessee Disability Pathfinder publishes the Tennessee Disability Services & Supports Directory, a statewide directory in three regional volumes (East, Middle & West Tennessee). Pathfinder maintains the Pathfinder Disability Calendar, an Internet calendar of training and other disability-related events. Organizations post events to this calendar, the most comprehensive web listing of Tennessee disability events.

National Family Association for Deaf-Blind

The National Family Association for Deaf-Blind (NFADB) is a non-profit, volunteer- based family association. Our philosophy is that individuals who are deaf-blind are valued members of society and are entitled to the same opportunities and choices as other members of the community. NFADB is the largest national network of families focusing on issues surrounding deaf-blindness.
