ORANGE COUNTY, Calif.
- Sept. 3, 2014
-- Tustin, CA- Special need families, caregivers, educators, service providers, and supporters will gather on Saturday, September 20, 2014 to get resources and information at the 1st Annual Special Needs Resource Fair. This event is being hosted by the YMCA of Orange County Community Services Division and sponsored by Springfield College. The fair will have vendors from different programs that support children and adults with special needs from organizations that help with early intervention, applied behavior analysis, transition support, independent living options, and much more in between. There will also be two informative presentations on topics related to children with special needs and an additional two presentations for adults with special needs. The fair will be held at Springfield College from 9am-12pm and is free and open to the public.
"We hope to bring families with children of all ages from all of Orange County together at this resource fair so that they can meet professionals in the special needs field. A lot of families do not even know that these services are available to them and we want to help support them," states Carla Reyna, Program Director of the New Horizons program for adults with developmental disabilities.
YMCA Community Services provides essential support for the most overlooked members of our community, delivering unique programs and services to youth and adults with developmental disabilities and foster care youth and families. For additional questions contact the YMCA at 714-508-7654.
