Life Strategies Workshop

2 Day Life Strategies Workshop

To make sure special needs families are fully informed of the programs available and how to communicate their hopes and dreams to future caretakers, For Families of Special Needs, Inc. has developed a 2-Day Life Strategies Workshop.

Families like yours face responsibilities, issues, and emotions that the “typical” family does not. Each day can be a challenge to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial requirements of your special needs family. This Workshop is designed to help all families begin the Life Planning Process.
