YOU - Strong, Centred and Connected: Parents' Night Out

  • Italian Canadian Club Guelph 135 Ferguson Street Guelph, Ontario Canada (map)

With generous support from the Guelph Community Foundation, Facilitation Wellington Dufferin is pleased to host a dinner and presentation for family members of adult children who have a developmental disability:

YOU—Strong, Centred and Connected

We all want a good life. For our loved ones. For ourselves. But it takes energy, stamina and community to make it happen. Especially over the long run. The better you’re doing, the more you have to give. Time for a night to focus on YOU.

Learn easy, practical, and proven ways to improve your health, mental health and supports. Meet other fabulous parents who “get it.” Join us for a fun night of delicious food, great company and fresh ideas on self-care.

P.S. There WILL be chocolate!

See you there!
