2012 Questions & Answers Book Available
The Family Cafe is proud to announce the publication of the 2012 edition of The Family Cafe Questions & Answers Book.
This publication is a direct product of the engagement shown by all of our attendees at The 14th Annual Family Cafe this past June. We collected dozens of "pink cards" from people with disabilities and their families, and shared their questions and comments with the State Agencies that exist to serve them. This year's Q&A Book includes information from the Agency for Healthcare Administration, the Agency for Persons with Disabilities, the Department of Children and Families, Department of Education, Department of Health, Division of Emergency Management, and the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation. We have also responded to the may questions that were directed to The Family Cafe itself. You can find our 2012 "Report Card," with ratings and feedback from our attendees about The 14th Annual Family Cafe, too.
You can find The Family Cafe Questions & Answers Book for 2012 here!
