Present at The 26th Annual Family Cafe

The Family Cafe is currently seeking presentation proposals for The 26th Annual Family Cafe, which will be held on June 14-16, 2024 in Orlando.

The Annual Family Cafe brings together thousands of people with disabilities and their family members for three days of education, training, and networking each year. The more than 200 breakout sessions on the agenda form the backbone of the event, and we rely on the knowledge and expertise of our many presenters to make the event a success.

We’re currently looking for presenters that are willing to share what they know about topics of interest to people with disabilities with attendees at The 26th Annual Family Cafe. If you or someone you know is interested in presenting, we want to hear from you!

You can find the online Presentation Proposal Form here.

If you prefer, you can also download the Presentation Proposal Form here.

Presentation proposals are due by January 5, 2024.

Thanks for Attending The 25th Anniversary Family Cafe, June 9-11 in Orlando!

What an amazing event! It was so great to see everyone coming together at The 25th Anniversary Family Cafe!

The Annual Family Cafe brought together thousands of people with disabilities and their family members for three days of education, training, and networking.

Thanks to everyone that made it happen, including our Sponsors, Presenters, Exhibitors, Keynote Speakers, tireless volunteers, and self-advocate performers. And thanks most of all to the people that make the event such a success: Attendees like you! 

We rely on your feedback to make the event better every year, and to make sure that The Family Cafe serves up the information and resources you need. If you haven’t already, please take a minute to fill out a Report Card to let us know how we did, and what you’d like to see in 2024.

Another great way to make your voice heard is by completing a Pink Card. Share your comments and questions about Florida’s disability service delivery system, then let us get answers from the state agencies that serve you. We’ll publish their written responses in our Questions & Answers Book in the fall. 

Make sure to mark your calendar for The 26th Annual Family Cafe, on June 14-16, 2024 at the Hyatt Regency Orlando. See you there!

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.
