Fall Parent Learning Series

Image of a family at morning breakfast table with parents and children, one child is enjoying his breakfast in a wheelchairThe Arc is getting back to our roots. The grass roots and strength parents found when they banded together to re-imagine a future of possibilities for their children. In many ways, the founding parents paved the way for the supports and services many enjoy today. By becoming engaged and informed they could hurdle obstacles, relieve anxiety, and face challenges with renewed vigor.

 

The Arc is proud to announce we are offering a fall learning series to educate and help parents, siblings, and caregivers navigate ways to safeguard their loved one now, and into the future. Because education is an important first step, we have secured the best help from both the financial and legal side of what you need to know to safeguard your loved ones future. Both these presenters hail from Chicago area and we are especially please to bring their high quality programming to the Quad Cities.

 

Participants can take advantage of one, or all of the sessions. We encourage participants to attend the entire series if possible.

 

Most sessions are free but, registration is required. Please register by calling 309-786-6474 or e-mail dixonl@arcqca.org
