Family-to-Family Communities Project webinar 6/8/16
Please join me and Toni Hollingsworth (MS) as we share results of the F2FC pilot project and plan for the next phase. Link to webinar information here- https://nationaldb.org/events/detail/0/1004
The Family-to-Family Communities (F2FC) project, a collaboration of the National Family Association for Deaf-Blind (NFADB), the National Center on Deaf-Blindness (NCDB), and State Deaf-Blind Projects, offers a unique way for families to connect with one another. Small groups of families come together monthly, via phone conference or distance technology, to get to know one another, share information and resources, celebrate successes, offer support during challenges, and simply to lend an understanding ear.
During November 2014 – October 2015, the Southeast Regional Teaming Group instituted a year-long pilot project for F2FC. Two F2FC groups were established and monthly calls were led by two facilitators and a moderator for each F2FC. The F2FC Team gathered evaluative data through surveys and focus groups. A summary and results of the pilot project will be shared during this webinar.
The F2FC Team would like to replicate and expand the F2FC project in order to reach and support more families, and we need to determine partnerships and structure for the continued F2FC project. We are aiming to launch F2FC call groups in Fall 2016. During this webinar, we will discuss preliminary plans, get input from interested parties, and share initial ideas of how states can contribute and participate.
