Hi group members,
After re-reading the discussion strands on Cooking and Disabilities and Baking and Disabilities, I thought about the partnerships involved in setting up and running such programs. The more effective the programs, the more collaborations needed for them to run. Some possibilities come to mind including transportation, other agencies serving adults with disabilities, large state agencies such as the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation or the Division of Blind Services, agencies that provide sign language interpreters, Recreation Centers/YMCA, public libraries, group living/transitional facilities, supported employment locations, and industry partnerships, etc.
I would love to hear members respond to this question. What partnerships and collarborations have been successful in your programs?
Thank you for sharing your experiences.
