Hey All,

Earlier in the year we invited everyone in our WRFN Family to provide input for a collective report we were helping sponsor.  This report was prepared by Taylor Newberry Consulting and sponsored by KW Community Association for Community Living, Planned Lifetime Networks, Autism Services Waterloo Region and Waterloo Region Family Network. Two forums were hosted earlier this year to gather information from self-advocates and parents on what’s important to them about supportive housing.

The final report is now ready and available, please check it out and see how to information gathered is being used to empower adults with disabilities in the Waterloo Region
