The Florene Stewart Poyadue Papers consist of administrative files, publicity and outreach material, photographs, and audiovisual material created by Poyadue and Parents Helping Parents (PHP) during her tenure with the organization. Poyadue's work with PHP transformed the organization from a small local support group to a national and international prototype for parent resource networks. Items in this collection document her contributions to PHP, and highlight how her vision and work impacted the lives of so many. Under Poyadue, PHP became a United Way agency in 1985, and was recognized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 1990 as the model for parent to parent resource centers across the nation.
