Event description

Description

Did you know that some programs for families of special needs have a wait list of up to 17 years? Is your family prepared to make decisions regarding all aspects of your child's life if something happens to you?

Families like yours face responsibilites, issues, and emotions that the "typical" family does not. Each day can be a challenge to meet all of the needs. To make sure special needs families, like yours, are fully informed of the programs available and how they work, this amazing workshop is being offered to all foster, adoptive, and kinship families.

The truth is "what is right for a "typical" family is usually wrong for a family of special needs." During this workshop you will learn:

(1) Applying for and keeping SSI

(2) Medicaid and waiver programs

(3) Wills and Trusts: Why is it important and how do you set it up to make sure your children are protected?

(4) Estate Planning: It's not just a will and a trust. What else do you need ot consider and include?

(5) Guardianship: What does it mean to have guardianship and do you need it?

(6) Life Planning: A life plan for your child goes beyond a will, a trust, and financial plan. What else do you need and how do you make sure that when you're gone, the plan has been communicated to everyone?

What will I obtain from this workshop:

(1) "A Big Ugly Green Book", the life plan for your child that can be passed on to other caregivers

(2) An opportunity to meet and talk with a guest panel of residential, vocationl and day program providers

(3) Access to lawyers who can answer questions regarding wills, trust and guardianship for special needs families

(4) Life Planners with personal experience in caring for special needs children and adults will be available to answer specific questions.

Don't let these things keep you up at night anymore. Sign up today to learn everything you need to know and whom to talk to when you have questions. This incredible workshop typically costs $500 per couple, but Embrace is scholarshiping a large portion of the cost per couple to bring your price to $150 per houseold or couple (earlybird price). Breakfast and lunch are provided. Children may not attend the workshop and childcare is not provided.
