Your Invited to our Family and Staff Connections
Do you know someone with a Developmental Disabilities looking for information about services or Self Direction?
What is a Family and Staff Connection?
A Family and Staff Connection is an event that provides information, support, socialization, prospective staff and resources about services such as:
*OPWDD also known as Office for People with Developmental Disabilities
*Self Direction (Brokers, Job Developers and Staff)
* MSC’s (Medicaid Service Coordinators)
We usually offer monthly connections in Nassau County at the Rockville Centre Library, as well as several Suffolk County Library’s. This provides a safe environment to come and ask question, get information about services that you may be entitled to through OPWDD, meet available MSC’s, Brokers or Job Developers, and interview prospective staff such as Community Habilitation Staff or Job Coaches.
Who should attend?
Individuals, Families, Brokers, MSC’s, Job Developer’s, Comm. Hab Staff, Job Coaches, or anyone that would like to provide information or resources. Fiscal Intermediaries are welcome as well.
Families bring your questions. MSC’s, Brokers and Job Developers bring your business cards. Staff bring at least 20 or more resumes to share with families and brokers.
