  Exploring the Power of Support Circles     

This unique virtual learning series is designed for people with disabilities, families, friends, independent facilitators, supporters and allies from Windsor and Essex County.  Consider joining us, as our virtual learning with Judith McGill continues into 2022. We are starting to build a learning community together in Windsor and Essex County!

You can register for both sessions remaining, or just one or the other. There is no requirement to take them all. The next session is being held on February 23, 2022. Some families are registering for different sessions to gain knowledge for the future. Some have had past exposure to the concepts, and are taking the full series to begin working on a Support Circle later in the year. No matter where you are at – whether you are new to the idea of a Support Circle, or not – this learning will benefit your family in the future.
