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.
The Family Café does everything it can to connect its attendees with the resources it offers at the lowest cost possible.
The Annual Family Café remains a free event, with no registration cost for people with disabilities and their families.
Only those attending in a professional capacity are asked to pay a $200 registration fee.
The Family Café is also proud to offer families limited Financial Assistance, which can provide for complimentary accommodations at the host hotel. Financial Assistance is distributed through a lottery process. To request Financial Assistance, make sure to check the appropriate box on the registration form. (Due to the transition to a virtual event, Financial Assistance will not be distributed in 2020.)
The Family Café and its Planning Committee are hard at work planning a fantastic event that is sure to engage you and your family, while providing you with useful information and access to all manner of resources. We hope you can join us this June for another serving of Collaboration, Advocacy, Friendship and Empowerment!
