A Community Conversation on Disability and Faith
Let’s explore how service providers, agencies, local leaders, and faith communities can work together to support the spiritual needs of people with disabilities and their families. A community conversation is a creative, engaging, open-ended way to bring communities together to generate ideas and make connections. Your voice is needed!
