Mass Families Birthday Updates
Happy 30th Birthday, Mass Families!
Since 1990, Massachusetts Families Organizing for Change (MFOFC) has been uniting families of individuals with disabilities and/or chronic illnesses to build a better future of supporting families. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be celebrating 30 years of imagining better. We will share stories and perspectives from family leaders who have been involved with MFOFC throughout […]
“I’m a graduate of the 2017-2018 Family Leadership Series and so very thankful for every bit of time spent there listening, learning, networking, and dreaming big. My biggest take away, other than the many new friends and their system of support, is that true inclusion is not creating special opportunities for people to be included. Inclusion is adjusting our current society in a way that all people can successfully and comfortably participate in anything they desire.”
“(The Family Leadership Series was) One of the BEST experiences of our lives! Humbling, educational and overall, the best experience! I attended with my husband. He agrees, “the best experience!!””
“It is so important to know and understand the processes that our families with special needs must direct to achieve their life goals and personal goals. From the first day of the training, it was wonderful to put into practice the skills and knowledge I learned to be my own advocate for my family… I believe that the tools that Massachusetts Families Organizing for Change have given me are invaluable. ”
