Join us for a conversation on groups and coalitions for family members of individuals with disabilities. Well discuss why they are important, and the types of activities, resources, advocacy, information, services and support they coordinate and provide. We'll also talk about how to organize a vibrant group in your community that gains support and members, and makes a positive impact! 

Our guests are from the southeastern region of Pennsylvania. Joining us will be:

Sara Crimm of Families CCAN, a group of families of adults with disabilities who are working to find innovative solutions for employment, housing and community living for their adult family members.

Tara Horowitz of AutismGuards, a parent and guardian resource/networking group facilitating educational information and recreational resources for adolescents with ASD.

Jim Wurster of New Avenue Foundation, whose mission is is to create more meaningful lives for people with disabilities and autism, and to reduce dependence on the government programs that now support these individuals.

PA Independent Living Radio Show is brought to you Fridays at 12:00 pm EST by The Arc of Luzerne County. Please consider a donation in support of our work to help improve the quality of life for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and their families.
