FPPMD’s Connect program launched with its first location in New Jersey at the end of 2008. Since then, we’ve expanded to more states and are gearing up to add additional groups. A Volunteer Coordinator(s) is chosen to head up each of PPMD’s Connect locations, and groups are required to hold in-person family/parent get togethers and maintain consistent communication with their groups throughout the year.
