OFN and Milestones present: Families at the Center of a Connected Community (Starfire)
October 8, 2020 from 7:00pm - 9:00pm
Sponsor: Milestones Autism Resources, Ohio Family Network
Starfire will equip families and people with ID/DD to disrupt patterns of isolation and paid services that limit them and their identity to disability. Families will be mentored and supported as they build social connections with others who share interests and passions and work towards a community-building project. Tried and tested by Starfire, this family-centric and gifts-forward model is unique to the field and puts families at the forefront of inclusion. Starfire will host trainings for grantee organizations in person and will provide support through ongoing digital resources, zoom calls, and ongoing mentorship.
