Support Group for Parents/Caregivers of adults and children with intellectual and developmental disabilites

February 13, 2016
11:00 Am-12:00Pm
Imagine Possibilities
4450 SW 148th Ave. Aloha, Oregon 97007

Participant care during the group duration will be provided as well as light refreshments

Purpose: The purpose of our group is to bring parents and families together to connect and network with one another through the sharing of stories, experiences, and resources, while creating a sense of community.

Group Focus: Our parent/caregiver support group hopes to provide an opportunity for parents, caregivers, and other family members of individuals with disabilities to find a place of belonging, share specialized knowledge and experiences, increase knowledge of support systems, share resources, and provide one another with insight on ways to handle situations they face.

Please RSVP via email to miranda@imaginepossibilities.net, include the number of parents/caregivers that will be attending, as well as any individuals that will need care to ensure we have enough staff coverage. Details about the individual receiving care, such as age, behavioral issues, preferred activities, and any medical information should be included in the RSVP.

Please feel free to contact Miranda via email or at 503-649-6100 with any questions.

In order to do this, we’re putting out a call for donations of some items we need. If you have any of the following in gently-used condition, please consider donating them so that we can continue to expand and grow our programs and facilities to best provide for our participants.

We are looking for:

  • a couch
  • 1-2 beanbag chairs or soft armchairs
  • 1-2 soft blankets and pillows
  • a floor lamp
  • christmas lights
