Registration is now open for our Community Living Month Town Hall on May 31st! Please find link below.
May is Community Living Month where we recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of people with developmental disabilities. Here at Empower Simcoe, this year’s Community Living Month theme is “Be, Belong, Thrive,” in honour of the perseverance and resilience shown by the people and families we support as we all continue to navigate the Covid-19 pandemic. Here’s how you can support Community Living Month in your program area:
• Please encourage the people and families you support to share photos or video of a proud moment from the last year, a new hobby learned, an exciting accomplishment, a milestone, or connections made with family and friends. Whatever highlight moment is most personal to them. Images can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org where they’ll be shared on our Empower Simcoe social media platforms during May.
• We’d also like to hear from the people you support with questions for the Believe In Yourself Committee. What can this Committee do for you? Is there something you’d like to see them advocate for? More training? More funding for a specific need? The Believe In Yourself Committee welcomes theses questions from the people and families you support at email@example.com.
• Then, to wrap up Community Living Month, please support people to join us for a virtual Town Hall on Monday May 31st from 1:00pm – 2:00pm hosted by the Believe In Yourself Committee, and people receiving services who will be lending their voice as part of the Person-Centred Focus Group during our upcoming accreditation. Please note, one must register in advance for the Town Hall here https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_7B4SMtDVT_-_L5CLfyRINA. This hour will be a celebration of the brightest moments of the people we support at Empower Simcoe, as well as a chance to hear of new meaningful goals for 2021.
