Celebrating 50 Years of Support

The Future is Now

Planning sessions for families of loved ones with developmental disabilities.

Create a plan for your child so their care continues when you are no longer able to provide it.

The Future is now is a two-part series designed to help caregivers and their family InsideOut 18.JPGmembers make plans for the future. Throughout this journey of discovery, we will guide families in creating their own letter of intent. A letter of intent is a non-legal document that captures family desires and goals for the future. Creating a letter of intent can help families gain peace of mind that comes with having a plan. 

Each session offers an opportunity to learn more about important topics: 

  • Hopes, dreams, and worries for the future
  • Expanding personal networks
  • Maximizing public benefits (SSI/SSDI/Social Security, STABLE accounts, and Trusts)
  • Future living arrangements
  • Supports for caregivers
  • Keepers of the dream
