Arc meeting Tuesday at HRH

SoVaNow.com / September 30, 2013
The community is invited to the Oct. 1 meeting of the Arc of Southern Virginia, Halifax County Sub Chapter, at 6:30 p.m. in the Leggett Auditorium at Halifax Regional Hospital.

This program titled, “Navigating the System: Road Maps to Supports & Services,” will provide a “how to” coaching session for caregivers of children and adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD).

“Navigating the system for support and services for individuals with disabilities can be overwhelming.” said charter member Elsie May Gladding. “Whether you are the caregiver of young child with I/DD, an elementary through high school student or an adult, there may be assistance and support for you and your loved one that you didn’t know existed.”

Participants are encouraged to come and share their most pressing concerns, tell their story, ask questions, and to bring paperwork.

“We will be providing strategies for overcoming road blocks and information about resources in our community in addition to state and federal programs,” Gladding said. “We’ll learn from each other and build bridges of support.”

Serving Halifax, Mecklenburg and Charlotte Counties, The Arc of Southern Virginia advocates for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, working to foster full inclusion and active participation in the community for the enrichment of the lives of these individuals and their families by providing community education, support, information and referral with a strong emphasis on youth and adult self-advocacy.

The Arc of Southern Virginia welcomes new members or “drop-ins” to their meetings and activities. Membership is free of charge, and meetings are informal.

The group meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 6:30 in the Leggett Auditorium at Halifax Regional Hospital.

No time for supper? If desired, participants may bring a bag supper or purchase a carry out supper form the hospital’s Bellwood Café.
