Community Calls

We are hosting weekly calls to get everyone on the same page and make sure everyone has the information they need.

Virtual Coffee Hours

We know how important it is to stay connected through this chaotic time. Join us for virtual coffee hours to spend time with members throughout the week!

Routine Building & Social Engagement

We are working with our partners to provide online learning opportunities and space to connect during while we are socially isolated.

We will get through this together.

MatchUS is an community-driven educator/related service provider and family response to support our students (and their families!) with disabilities/IEPs/support needs during this time of social distancing.

Housed in organization Massachusetts Families Organizing for Change, we are working with families and educators ANYWHERE (not just MA) to support 1:1 conversations about how best to support our students at home.
