Board Hosts August NE Region Advocacy Meeting

OSDA LogoThe Board is pleased to be the host County for the August NE Region Advocacy Meeting sponsored by the Ohio Self Determination Association (http://www.ohiosda.org/). The Ohio Self Determination Association strongly supports self-advocacy and promotes regional opportunities for self advocates and advocates from different counties getting together to share what they are already doing to create an awareness of disability issues and to learn from what is happening in other counties.
 
The August meeting will be held on August 21, 2013 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Kent American Legion – Underwood Hall, 1945 Mogadore Road, Kent, Ohio (Google Maps). Nine individuals from Portage County's self-advocacy group, Stepping Out: Leading with Abilities, will be attending. (Click here to view Stepping Out's Facebook page.) The August meeting will focus on how to live where and how you want to and housing options.
