Imagining Home Peer Support Group

Does your family member with disability want to move out of the family home and into their own place? Whether it’s an apartment shared with friends or a place all to themselves, there are many decisions to be made and thoughtful planning necessary.

We have a vision for imagining home for people with disability. That’s why we’ve set up a Peer Support Group specifically about Imagining Home.

This peer group supports families striving to help their family member with disability find a place to call home.

Join us once a month to connect with other families who are on the same journey. Listen to our guest speakers; learn from, share with and be supported by like-minded peers.

Our peer groups are free to attend but you must first register so that you receive notifications.
