Interested in participating in local support groups?
For individuals with disabilities and their families, it is not enough to be merely independent, but it is also necessary to have a group that supports and provides an empathetic relationship. Such a group acts as a forum to meet, to discuss and to represent their interests and needs to the outside world; it can also work collectively to seek the support services from those in authority, bring caregivers and practitioners to provide guidance and counsel to those in need.
EquallyAble support groups will serve different purposes, depending on the situation and the need. Such a forum can help people to be visible members in the larger community. Members can support one another through sharing information on referral services and other available resources; help make decisions on family and individual matters etc. It will allow the membership to support other such groups, they can advocate jointly to obtain services, and for integration in the larger community. A number of support groups are being formed in different cities, if you like more information, feel free contact us.
