Join with PART by making a donation to help protect a family’s choice to a SSLC when needed. Intermediate Care Facilities were created to provide a high level of care for those individuals who have a high level of need. 

*PART is in the process of obtaining DBA as Parents and Allies for Remarkable Texans in order to reflect our movement to a more inclusive terminology. 

PART is still listed at the IRS as Parents Association for the Retarded of Texas at this time. 

We are dedicated to securing, maintaining, and improving the full continuum of educational and residential placement options for everyone in Texas with all levels of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and/or Severe Mental Illness.

PART is an IRS certified 501(c)(3) Non-profit

If you believe that PART has spoken up for those with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and you believe as we do, that the Texas State Supported Living Centers are an essential service for its most severely impacted citizens, providing a donation will help PART continue to educate the public, the media and lawmakers.

PART is committed to raise awareness about the high level of need of its residents and the high level of care the SSLCs provide.

PART thanks you for your support.

PART is organized exclusively for charitable, religious, educational, and scientific purposes as defined under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and/or the corresponding section of any future federal tax code to provide education, support and information to families with members who are Intellectually or Developmentally Disabled as well as educating the public and policy makers regarding the on-going needs of those who are Intellectually or Developmentally Disabled; their doctors, the staff and other care-givers of the State Supported Living Centers, and other facilities under the Health and Human Services Commission. 

Ideas if you can't donate at this time.

1. Share every positive story you see about the incredible creativity, love and compassion that is happening at your SSLC. Use Facebook and Twitter to share your story and share or tag Save Our SSLCs.

2. Contact your local Volunteer Services Council. Ask if you can help in some way. You could order food for the staff, send a greeting card to a resident, donate money, or find some other way to show your support.

3. When you see negative stories about the SSLCs write letters to the editor, contact journalists. Speak up! Let us know if you read any articles and send a message with a link to the article on our Contact Page. 

4. Let your legislators know about what is happening at your Center and how it meets your loved one’s needs. Share pictures and stories of your loved one and their life.
