2018 TASH Conference has ended
Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Be Creative - Innovative Solutions for an Inclusive Life,” reminds us to think outside the box during times of uncertainty. Creativity, innovation, and determination can pave the way for meaningful and inclusive lives for people with disabilities.

All services and supports evolve over time. Family peer support is no different. From support groups and gatherings in church basements, to Arcs and dad's groups, family peer support has evolved, and the Oregon Consortium of Family Networks (OCFN) represents a new model in that evolution. This model of peer support is designed to emphasize typical life experiences, diverse support, and the reciprocal value of local community engagement. When empowered families meet empowered communities, community capacity and family trajectory is changed. There is opportunity for innovation within family peer support, and during this session, representatives from OCFN and the Oregon Council on Developmental Disabilities (OCDD) will talk about how Oregon is approaching this charge.
