A Full Life Ahead
A Full Life Ahead is a series of workshops designed for decision supporters and caregivers to learn more about topics relevant for transition-age youth and adults with disabilities.
Many workshop topics are offered, including friendships, transition, employment, housing and financial planning.
The workshops and resources provided will help lead to interdependent, full lives in the community for people with disabilities.
The series takes place in the five regions of MassFamilies. Workshops may be presented in one or more of the regions: Central, Metro Boston, Northeast, Southeast (Taunton), Southeast, and West. You are welcome to attend any workshop at any of these locations.
