The Value of Family Networks and Family to Family Connections

Free Webcast!


For over 75 years, families in Ontario have come together to build better lives for their loved ones with a disability. Through meaningful relationships with one another, families build resilience, and courage and also bring innovation to the challenges they face.


This webcast will discuss why family-to-family connections can be important for family members of a loved one with a disability, what you might expect from connecting to a Family Network and how to begin (or begin again) to connect to a Family Network that is a good fit for you.
