Reaching out to Special Needs
Inclusive Faith Supports
Building Connections and Community Supports with Your Congregation or Faith Community: A Workshop for Individuals, Families, and Community Members
Sunday Afternoon, 2-5 p.m. June 3, 2012
There is growing recognition that inclusion in faith communities can be a door to relationships and inclusion in the wider community for individuals with disabilities and their families, and that people with developmental disabilities bring gifts and service to congregational life. Although there are still experiences of being excluded from faith communities, increasing numbers of congregations and faith communities in New Jersey and across the country are developing a variety of inclusive ministries and supports for children and adults with disabilities and their families. This workshop is designed for individuals, families, and community members and will provide strategies and resources for building connections with their own faith congregations as a source of community support.
Light refreshments provided.
June 3, 2012 3 hours 2:00 – 5:00 p.m.
