The State-Wide Family Advocacy Network of New York State
(SWAN of NYS) is dedicated to advocating for individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. We are an independent coalition of families and guardians of people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. Caring for our loved ones is our life-long commitment.

We have come together from across New York State. We are the parents and families of children with developmental disabilities.
We were there at the start, and we are not going away. We are independent of any government or private agency. We are committed to a constructive, cooperative effort with all parties wishing to improve the lives of our loved ones, the citizens with disabilities of New York State.  We welcome you to join our coalition!
