Building Bridges: Supporting Families and Self-Advocates through Engagement
Building Bridges events are opportunities for families and self-advocates to meet and speak with the Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services state staff. These sessions are an important part of the Bureau’s efforts to create direct avenues for individuals and families to share their feedback on services such as waivers and supervised group living. These meetings are solely for families and individuals with disabilities to provide a forum for constructive and valuable conversations on successes and concerns, as well as providing suggestions or input for positive change.
It is the desire of BDDS that these meetings will allow for meaningful conversations that result in positive outcomes and stronger relationships. We hope you will consider joining us!
Following are the dates and locations for the next quarterly meetings. All meetings will be from 6 – 8:00 p.m. local time.
