Parent Empowerment Network (PEN) is a non-profit, 501 C 3 organization dedicated to ensuring all students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to live meaningful, fulfilling and productive lives. We work to ensure that they receive free appropriate public education according to the Individual with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). We seek to protect, improve and build bridges to create a more productive working relationship between the parent and the educator, such as, promote opportunities and better living for student to adult self-sufficiency.
