Disability Advocacy Hour Podcast - Episode 9: Florida Association of Rehabilitation Facilities

Another edition of The Family Cafe Disability Advocacy Hour podcast is here!

In this episode we have a conversation with Tyler Sununu and Courtney Swilley from the Florida Association of Rehabilitation Facilities (FARF). In addition to explaining the role of FARF in the continuum of care, we also discuss this year’s preeminent issue related to individuals with disabilities, an overdue rate increase for direct support professionals. These critical employees are a lifeline for families and the lack of fair compensation makes it extremely difficult for institutions, companies and individuals to attract and retain qualified caregivers. In this episode we will discuss the appropriations request and legislative strategy behind this important issue.

If you’re interested in how to help, this podcast is a great place to start!

We encourage you to check out this latest episode here!

The Questions & Answers Book from The 23rd Annual Family Cafe is now available!

Each year at The Annual Family Cafe, we give attendees a chance to submit a “Pink Card” with a question or comment about Florida’s service delivery system for people with disabilities. We then take those questions and comments and distribute them to the relevant state agencies. They provide written responses, and we put them together to create our Questions & Answers Book.

If you have a question about how Florida meets the needs of its citizens with disabilities, the Questions & Answers Book is a great place to start looking for answers!

Donate to The Family Café

Since 1998, The Family Café has been connecting Floridians with disabilities and their families with information, training, resources, and networking opportunities. The families that came together to create The Family Café, and our signature event, The Annual Family Café, believed that by coming together, Florida families could support each other, connect each other with critical resources, and build inclusive, disability-friendly communities.

To realize our vision of a future where people with disabilities are truly valued, we rely on the investment of those that share our beliefs. If you want to help us build a future where people with disabilities can thrive in their communities, we invite you to support our work my making a donation today.
