DSPG Kick Off Meeting – Wednesday, September 10 @ 7pm
September 10, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for our annual kick off meeting, Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at 7pm at Medaille College, room TBA. We will be voting on our 5 open board positions and hearing about People Inc.’s Second Family Program from the director, Carrie Grant. (Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on open board positions.)
People Inc.’s Second Family program offers a unique residential choice to individuals who have developmental disabilities. Through the Second Family program, an individual benefits from a “family” environment with an emphasis on integrating the family, home and lifestyle of a provider and the individual. The Second Family program is often an ideal setting for families looking for their family member to transition from their home to another similar environment. Individuals leaving their natural home for the first time often thrive in Second Family because it is designed to be as similar as possible to a natural home and family environment. The atmosphere and mission of Second Family is to provide a nurturing place for an individual with a disability to be surrounded by a family, offering their unique care and support. Second Family is also unique in that a family can identify their own provider if they so choose! Anyone can become a provider (other than the parent of the individual with a disability) such as a fellow community member, neighbor, sibling, church member ect….!
Come see what other exciting events we have planned and share your thoughts on what is to come.
