Sponsored by the disABILITY Resource Expo. In this trying time of COVID-19, when faced with having to cancel our usual in-person disABILITY Resource Expo, our committee decided to offer an alternate way for individuals with disabilities and their families to obtain much-needed resource information.
We have planned a series of four monthly, virtual events - mini-expos, if you will - that will feature a given sector of resource organizations. Each event will include an overview of all featured exhibitors, followed by a chance to speak with exhibitors in Zoom "breakout rooms," and ending with a featured exhibitor presentation. All will be held on the Third Thursday of the month, from 3:00 - 4:30 p.m. We are hopeful that many of our local families will be able to participate.
Dates/Topics are as follows:
- Oct 15, 2020: Healthcare & Equipment
- Nov. 19, 2020: Self-Help/Support Groups & Vocational/Residential/Recreation Services
- Jan. 21, 2021: Advocacy, Legal & Service Organizations
