What is Idaho Parents Unlimited?

Founded in 1985, Idaho Parents Unlimited, Inc. (IPUL) is a statewide organization which houses the Idaho Parent Training and Information Center, the Family to Family Health Information Center, Idaho Family Voices, the Creative Access Art Center and VSA Idaho, the State Organization on Arts and Disability. 

The Parent Training and Information Center ensures that parents of children with disabilities receive training and information on their rights, responsibilities, and protections under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in order to develop the skills necessary to cooperatively and effectively participate in planning and decision making relating to early intervention, educational, and transitional services.

As the State Family Voices Affiliate and the Family to Family Health Information Center, IPUL assists families in making informed choices about health care; provides training, information and resources to families of children with special health care needs.

VSA Idaho empowers and engage people with disabilities in the creative process through opportunities which are fully inclusive, educational and participatory. VSA Idaho creates opportunities by providing professional training and workshops, developing state initiated projects and implementing successful national programs. VSA Idaho in cooperation with funding through various sources such as the State Department of Education and the Idaho Commission on the Arts provide opportunities for artists to work alongside teachers providing quality arts education to students with disabilities throughout the state.

The Creative Access Art Center is housed within our office space located in the cultural district of Boise at 500 South 8th Street.  This Center was made possible through a Medicaid Infrastructure Grant via the State Independent Living Council which also supported the Master/Artist Apprentice Program from 2009-2013 in which apprentice artists with disabilities were paired with a master artist in order to hone a new skill or improve upon an emerging skill allowing for meaningful future employment opportunities in a field of one’s own choice - the arts.

The Creative Access Art Center and the programs at Idaho Parents Unlimited fulfill a mission to educate, empower, support and advocate for individuals with disabilities and their families.
