The 26th Annual Family Café

Since 1998, The Annual Family Café has brought Floridians with all types of disabilities together for three days of information, training, and networking each June. With a great range of individual breakout sessions, a packed Exhibit Hall with dozens of vendors, and a series of special events including Keynote speakers and The Governors’ Summit on Disabilities, The Annual Family Café offers attendees exposure to resources on a grand scale, unprecedented access to policy-making officials, and a chance to network with other individuals with disabilities and their families.
There is no registration fee for individuals with disabilities and their families, and limited Financial Assistance is available to cover the cost of your hotel stay at the host site, the Hyatt Regency Orlando. To apply for Financial Assistance, simply check the box on the registration form. Financial Assistance is determined by lottery.
