Family leaders, Family Networks, Independent Facilitators and Direct Service Providing Agencies are working together to put on this unique event – a provincial conference with Zoom video-conferencing.  Windsor-Essex Family Network is happy to be doing its part!  . . . . . Appreciation to the many partners supporting this event, and to the Zoom site sponsors across the province.

*What is a Microboard?   A Microboard™ is a small (micro) group of committed family and friends (a minimum of 5 people) who join together with the individual to create a non-profit society (board). Together, you help the individual: plan his/her life; brainstorm ideas; advocate for what they need; monitor services and ensure they are safe; connect to his/her wider community; and do fun things together.
