About LINK
About LINK
Hopes, talents and dreams...As a unified coalition of Dane County (WI) agencies, LINK has been providing services, programs and advocacy for children with disabilities and their families for over 20 years. We are united by a common mission and an integrated set of guiding principles.

Our Mission
Children with disabilities in Dane County will be able to live at home with their families and pursue their hopes, talents and dreams.

LINK's Guiding Principles

  1. Children who have disabilities are children, first. All children need acceptance, love, nurturing, security and recognition of their unique gifts.
  2. All children have the right to a home, and a place in a family. Committed adults with whom the child shares a home and who have decision making power pursue the child's best interests.
  3. Parents are the best allies in all activity that serves the child. Parents are in the best position to know their needs, to find solutions and to choose the kinds of support that will help them care for their child.
  4. Children with disabilities deserve a valued place in the community where they can live, learn and grow. Our communities are enriched by the diversity and involvement of all members.
  5. Community investment in offering a variety of quality human service programs has demonstrated clear success in promoting learning, achievement and a better quality of life for children with disabilities and their families.
  6. The best way to meet the needs of children is to support and build on the strength of their families. Families have tremendous capacity to raise a child with disability, especially when they receive support from friends, neighbors, humans service professionals and programs, and other community membersMeeting Santa...

LINK members meet routinely throughout the year, with sub-committees meeting more often.
