familyWORKs Chapters

The Family Support Institute with the support of sponsors, is creating familyWORKs chapters around British Columbia that will bring families together to learn the different approaches in finding employment for people with differing abilities.


 Conversations regarding Employment

familyWORKS is intended to help families dream, believe and receive information about how to best achieve employment for their family members who live with a disability.

We invite you to sit down with others and explore the stories of others, learn, ask questions, and share concerns or passions about the best approaches to get employment for your family members.

 Come, join in and have open discussions with other families on the subject of employment.  The vision of familyWORKS is to have an ongoing conversation with families about employment issues for people with disabilities.  We will meet to hear presentations, guest speakers and learn from each other.
