Info Session: Creating and Facilitating Relationships Through Community Engagement

Relationships are an essential and intimate part of everyone’s daily life, including individuals with developmental disabilities. Relationships and friendships not only encourage individual expression, dreams and passions but also provide important natural supports necessary to have a good life in community. Individuals with developmental disabilities will never secure a safe and meaningful life if the only people in their lives providing support are staff paid to be there. A principle role of staff hired by families through FMS must be to facilitate community engagement, membership and belonging to allow for the emergence of freely given relationships and friendships. 

 

This session will explore: 

  • The meaning and power of natural pathways
  • Strategies for community engagement and inclusion through which relationships can emerge 
  • How families and FMS staff can facilitate and encourage connections within the community 
  • How to identify individual interests 

 

Families and FMS Staff are welcome to attend.
