There will be a Caregiver Cooperative Meeting:

Oct 18 @ 7pm
Utah DD Council Office
155 S. 300 W. Suite 100, Salt Lake City, UT 84101

Why a Utah Caregiver Cooperative ~ With funding from a Utah DD Council grant a caregiver cooperative has been formed. The purpose of the cooperative is to help parents join together to better support themselves and their children with disabilities. Hundreds of people wit…h disabilities are languishing on the state’s waiting list, and with extremely tight government budgets, the chance of actually receiving services is diminishing. Are large number of parents are wondering what they can do to secure a future for their child. Parents can join a cooperative, and with other parents, pool resources and create supports and networks that they otherwise may not be able to afford. Parents can join the cooperative for no charge and can participate anywhere in the state.

If you are unable to attend and would like the information e-mail: gnebeker@comcast.net.
