What Makes Supported Living So Good!

Supported living is the fastest growing residential option in Florida outside of the family home. This presentation will provide an in-depth look into what makes it so good. Please join us and hear members of this multimedia panel overview of supported living and why it has become the most popular and preferred residential option.

We Are More Alike Than Different: Bring It On

This roundtable session at The 14th Annual Family Cafe invited advocate representatives of a variety of disabilities to discuss current areas of focus and opportunities for persons of varying disabilities to collaborate on solutions, leadership, and direction in an effort to promote a more responsive system of care. This facilitated discussion  encouraged issue identification, solution brainstorming, and disability knowledge and skill development that encourages cross disability advocacy. Just because systems are funneled into a silo approach to meeting the challenges posed by special needs does not mean we need to as well!
