Building Resilient Families
September 9, 16, 23: 5pm-7pm
This workshop will support parents and families with loved ones who have intellectual and developmental disabilities in finding safe ways to navigate stress and connect to a felt sense of safety. This evening will combine knowledge about navigating stress with practices that we can take with us wherever we go to support our sense of calm and groundedness.
Join us each week as we will build upon the skills and practice reducing our stress levels together.
Families at the Center of a Connected Community
October 8, 15, 22: 7pm-9pm
Families of people with ID/DD will learn tools and techniques to build a social network into the family’s life in order to reduce social isolation and bring the person with ID/DD and families’ gifts into the community by implementing an engagement project together with other citizens.
Social connection is one of our fundamental human needs and life satisfaction is linked with community connections. Join us weekly as we build on skills to creatively connect to our community (even during COVID-19).
