Proudly Supporting all Military Families with a Special Needs Dependent

Ah, the Changes to the MSNN Website….

ImageSo, you’ve probably noticed some slight changes to the aesthetics of the website. (Or maybe not.) Hopefully, it’s not tooooo confusing. The Board and I have been discussing ways to enhance the experience on the site, which involved making some changes that I’d like to briefly discuss. (We will be sending out a Member-wide Broadcast email within the next couple weeks detailing the changes)

1.  Right now, in order to be a Member of MSNN, you have to sign-up or sign-in. We did this in order to protect everyone’s privacy, and create a safe environment for our families (and ourselves) to share personal information and testimonies, especially in our Blogs and Discussion Forums. It’s something that I view as EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. Frankly, I don’t want my MIL reading about my struggles as a mom, or how emotionally taxing it is having a SN child. However, we are considering opening up PART of the website to the public, such as our Resources (which I’m going to talk about below), EFMP Forms, and other information that is public. BUT, the discussions & blogs will be kept PRIVATE. In order to view/comment/write – you will have to sign up/sign in.

2.  Resources…… We’re changing it up a LOT. We are actually going to be expanding our resources exponentially. We will have resources by disability and by branch of service. We will also be incorporating virtual “phone/address books” for all our EFM contacts around the globe. We REALLY, REALLY, REALLY need some help here in gathering information for resources, so we would LOVE your volunteerism 🙂 If you’re interested in helping – send me a message.

3.  We’re going to be offering Webinars & Podcasts, available 24 hours a day VERY soon. Super excited about this! I would love feedback on what kinds of topics that you would like to hear about! Everything’s available – if you want it – I’ll try my hardest to make it happen!

Basically, the changes that we are making within the site are not there to confuse everyone……..we want to make it more personal. We want each one of our Families to feel supported, empowered, and connected. We want to create a big Military family that is here for each other, no matter the circumstances.

On that note, I want each one of you to have my personal phone number (8) 524-6847. My email is: wen.kruse@militaryspecialneedsnetwork.com. Call or email me anytime – if you have questions or just want to chat.

 

Sincerely,

Wendy Kruse
