Connecting with community resources is often a trial and error adventure. Some activities may happen naturally, and others require work and perseverance. Families who have a son or daughter with a developmental disability are in the unique role of wearing multiple hats as a doctor, therapist, professional, bookkeeper, taxi driver, or any other skill needed to navigate this complex life. Join us as we make connections with parents and caregivers to build our knowledge and resources and discover tools and tricks for navigating life and increasing opportunities for involvement in the community.
Please RSVP by May 12th: (360) 715-0170, ext. 303, firstname.lastname@example.org. Limited supervised care for family members is available on a first-come, first-served basis with RSVP by May 12th.
