A Full Life Ahead: What Makes A House A Home

What: Advocates is joining forces with Massachusetts Families Organizing For Change to present their popular event series, A Full Life Ahead, at our Life Skills & Learning Center in Ashland, Mass. The series focuses on transition, employment, housing, friendships, and other topics that will lead to interdependent, full lives in the community for young adults with disabilities.

Join us for our first workshop together, “A Full Life Ahead: What Makes a House a Home?” Parents, Robin Kantrowitz and Susan Senator, will discuss challenges and successes of setting up and maintaining living arrangements for their sons. Jeff Keilson, senior vice president at Advocates, will discuss a variety of options including Adult Family Care, Shared Living, and group homes.

When: Tuesday, March 4, 2014 from 7 – 9:00 p.m.
