DC Supporting Families Community of Practice

Last Date:

500 8th Street NW
DLA Piper, LLP

We are excited to announce the next DC Supporting Families Community of Practice meeting, which we are thrilled to be co-sponsoring with the National Resource Center for Supported Decision-Making! This meeting will offer an opportunity to learn about and discuss important issues related to supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to make decisions throughout the life course. Additionally, we will provide updates on the progress made by our subcommittees since our last meeting on: (1) starting up a DC Parent to Parent chapter; (2) launching an Advocacy Across the Lifespan Guide; and (3) establishing a Family Support Council to advise DC government agencies.
