It’s that exciting time of year again when we set goals for ourselves and begin putting them into action! As parents, we focus first on ourselves and a big part of that is about how we can support our sons and daughters in setting and attaining their goals. In the first familyWORKs meeting in the fall on Thursday September 28th from 7:00 – 8:30PM, we will go over what employment options are available, which ones make the most sense for our son or daughter and how to access them through our many local service systems.
The option of winging it on your own is always there however families in the Tri-cities are fortunate in that they have plenty of other options available to them. At familyWORKs, parents come away with new ideas and a sense of feeling supported AND they learn about all the options.
We at familyWORKs enjoy meeting new families and so if you or your organization know parents who you believe would benefit in learning more about employment topics and meeting like minded families, please invite them to come to familyWORKs and share our flyers with them.
Additionally, I am happy to come to a parent-oriented meeting at your organization to talk about familyWORKs and the Family Support Institute to spread the word.
Thank you for your support.
