Matrix Supports Families of Children With Special Needs

Start Here

A Message to Our Matrix Community


We wanted to let you know there are some changes happening at Matrix Parent Network and Resource Center. Recently our Executive Director, Steve Diamond, made a decision to end his position at Matrix and take a Program Director position at a larger organization in Marin. We wish Steve the best and thank him for all the work he did at Matrix during his 2.5 year tenure.

The Board of Directors will begin the process of searching for a new Executive Director in the coming weeks. In the meantime, we have rehired Beth Schecter, MPH, MBA, an experienced Interim leader. We welcome Beth back to Matrix and are pleased she can join us at this critical time. Visit Beth’s website to learn more about her work or connect with her via email:

We appreciate your patience during the next few weeks as we all settle into our new situation and as the Board determines its next steps and timeline. We have all learned flexibility during this pandemic and our staff has been incredibly nimble in continuing to provide high quality and much needed support to our parent community.

As we begin to come back to the office and to our community in-person, we are grateful for our resilient Matrix families. We will continue offering online trainings that empower families of children with special needs, and hope you will also join one of our online support groups.

In Collaboration,
Colleen Arnold, Matrix Board President
