Often the encouragement and support of others can be the building blocks to helping us reach our own goals for independent living. 

Join us to discuss relevant topics, empower others by sharing resources, knowledge of living with a disability, or simply enjoying conversation. There are two meeting options, in person or virtual. Feel free to register for one or both!

Thursdays from 11:00 – 12:00

Zoom link will be provided to those registered. If you need a virtual device or internet to participate, please let us know.

Tech Support
Do you need assistance utilizing technology to socialize with friends, attend medical appointments or, achieve your independent living goals? We can help! Please schedule a 1:1 session with a Consumer Engagement Specialist to learn how to navigate common platforms such as Google Drive and Zoom.
