Life Advocacy Family Information Session
Feb. 12, 2020 - Local families joined together to offer their insight on the topic of advocating for their family member with I/DD if and when they are unable to do so. The Arc CT's Executive Director, Win Evarts, presented information on a new program that would offer advocates to assist families in such matters. The program was well attended. Attendees were given surveys to offer feedback on the topic.
Families for Families Campaign:
The Arc Connecticut’s Families for Families campaign will build a family movement in Connecticut that will allow us to mobilize hundreds of families and individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) around preventing harmful changes, as well as promoting helpful changes, to the DDS private system of support.
