familyWORKs Meeting

March 31, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join us in Burnaby on Thursday, March 31 to join the conversation with Meaghan Taylor-Reid to learn and ask questions about employment services with CLBC including the difference between supported and customized employment.

This will be the first Burnaby meeting with our new facilitator, Bob Kashyap, taking over for Marta Carlucci.

As a parent of an individual with diverse ability, Bob knows the need for support, both on the physical and psychological level, for a population that cannot stand up for themselves. Thus working to promote positive change and increased understanding of all partners to ensure that an accessible, transparent and accountable approach to individuals with developmental disabilities is maintained, holds “real” meaning for him.

His personal philosophy is that it is imperative we support families of the marginalized ones who already face significant challenges, by fostering open communication and understanding between families who have a need and Government bodies who endeavor to meet these needs.
