Feria Partnership Vision

Our Vision

The purpose and vision of the FERIA Partnership Annual Conference Collaborative is to empower Latino families and provide them the knowledge to effectively support their children with special needs from cradle to college to adult life as well as to assist them in attaining their optimal learning potential through a culturally and linguistically responsive home, school and community collaborative in San Diego county, including a high school student leadership/self-advocacy and professional strand.

Our Mission

The mission of the FERIA home, school and community partnership is to provide an inclusive culturally and linguistically responsive conference environment, which creates a learning environment developed by Latino family voices. Professionals and parents will learn about evidence-based programs, home/school language and literacy strategies, agencies and organizations available in the local community. Identify resources that supports the social, emotional and academic development of their children and which will result in fostering student success that prepares individuals with special needs to be contributing members of society and to participate successfully in our local as well as our global community.
