New Session of Making Healthy Connections to Start this Fall!
Sponsored by Partners for Youth with Disabilities Inc.
We are currently inviting all youth with disabilities and/or special health care needs, ages 14-22, to apply to participate in Making Healthy Connections (MHC), a program of Partners for Youth with Disabilities. Making Healthy Connections is a transitions program for youth with disabilities and/or special health care needs who are 14 to 22 years of age. Youth will have opportunities to meet new friends with similar disabilities and learn information about topics such as their health care needs, independent living, fitness, talking to their health care providers independently, adaptive driving, and much more. Making Healthy Connections also features a variety of adaptive sports and recreation activities to make every meeting interactive and fun! There is a parent group component as well. In addition, participating youth will be given the opportunity to be matched to an adult mentor with a similar disability.
MHC program meetings begin in Fall 2012 and run through the Spring of 2013. Boston MHC meetings will take place two Friday evenings per month from 7pm - 9:30pm. Springfield MHC meetings will take place two Saturday afternoons per month from 1pm - 4 pm. A pre-registration appointment will be arranged for any youth who express interest in participating. The program fee is $75 (sliding scale arrangements are available for any family unable to afford the total amount).
Please help us reach young people with disabilities who will benefit from this important program! For more information about the Boston MHC program, contact Deep Chinappa at 617-556-4075, x20, or by email at . For more information about the Springfield MHC program, contact Susan Nicastro at (413) 584-0455 or by email at as soon as possible.
