The Center for Future Planning is pleased to announce the launch of its
website http://futureplanning.thearc.org  The website is the Center’s
first step in supporting and encouraging families and adults with
intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) to plan for the future.

The Center’s website provides reliable information and practical
assistance to families and individuals with I/DD on areas such as
person-centered planning, decision-making, housing options, financial
planning, establishing daily activities, and making social connections.
In addition, the website provides information to chapters of The Arc,
family members, friends, and professionals that support individuals with
I/DD. The website also features stories of people and families who have
created future plans or who are in the planning process.

Please contact Liz Mahar, Program Manager – Individual & Family Support,

202-617-3268 to learn more about the Center’s training opportunities and
plans to add more resources to the website.

This is a reminder to join us for the Arc of Tippecanoe County’s Legislative Forum on Monday, October 13 at 6:30 pm at the Tippecanoe County Public Library, McAllister Room B, 627 South Street, Lafayette.

We have invited the local legislative candidates so you can meet them and ask them questions. In addition, we will be joined by Kim Dodson from the Arc of Indiana and Kim Opsahl, President/CEO of INARF who will present an overview of their legislative agenda.

This is a great opportunity to be informed and educated about the important issues for the upcoming legislative session and to meet the candidates.
