A Full Life Ahead

A Full Life Ahead is a series of workshops designed for parents and caregivers as they plan for the future of their loved one with a disability.

Many workshop topics are offered, including friendships, transition, employment, housing and financial planning.

The workshops and resources provided will help lead to interdependent, full lives in the community for people with disabilities.

The series takes place in the five regions of MFOFC. Workshops may be presented in one or more of the MFOFC Regions: Central, Metro Boston, Northeast, Southeast (Taunton), Southeast (Matapoisett), and West. You are welcome to attend any workshop at any of these locations.
