Ramping Up for Independence
Planning for the Future: Housing/Living Options and Supported Employment
Presented by East Bay Innovations
Housing/Living Options: Janaury 14, 2015
Employment: February 18, 2015
Please start your new year by joining us for a mini-series on transition for parents and students, ages 14 - 22. The presentations will allow parents to learn more about how to best prepare their young adults for employment and independent living for their life after high school and will allow students to interact with young adults with disabilities who are employed and others who are living in some form of independent living. Information given will help parents understand how to navigate some of these very confusing systems. Space is limited so please register quickly.
For more information or to reserve a space, please contact Linda Ratner at firstname.lastname@example.org or GIna Gourley at email@example.com.

Bay Area Outreach and Recreation Program (BORP)
BORP was founded in 1976, by people with disabilities to create access to the outdoors, to fitness, to sports and to recreation for a population that had been left out. In the 1970's, there simply were no recreation programs in the state specifically for people with disabilities. Initially started as a small student program at UC Berkeley, BORP has since grown to serve children, adults and families from all over the greater Bay Area. Over the past 30 years, thousands of people have benefited from our innovative programs, trainings, referrals and consultations.
