DD Council Family Resource Fairs

Each borough's Develomental Disability Council holds a family resource fair, with expo tables for agencies and trainings for parents and professionals. If you aren't plugged into needed services, this is a great place to start. If you are entering a new phase of services, this is a good place to get a sense of what is out there.

Friday, November 2 -- 9:00 a.m. -3:00 p.m.
Queens Family Support Conference and Resource Fair
Sheraton La Guardia East Hotel 135-20 39th Avenue, Flushing
More info:

Thursday, November 8 -- 9:30 to 2 PM
Brooklyn Family Support Conference and Resource Fair
Borough Hall, Brooklyn

Thursday, November 29 -- 10 AM to 2 PM
Manhattan Family Support Conference and Resource Fair
St. Paul the Apostle, Amsterdam Avenue between 59th & 60th Streets

These events are free to families, and some offer a cash raffle. A great place to find out about waiver and non-waiver recreation, respite, and family reimbursement services.
