Join the Florida Center for Inclusive Communities on the third Wednesday of each month from 5:00PM - 6:00PM EST for an opportunity to participate in a series of webinars geared to build capacity on an array of employment related topics. The webinars are a tool used to share information and resources for self-advocates, family members, and other community partners to make informed choices and decisions about services, supports, policies, and best practices to ensure their requests and service provisions are based on individual goals and outcomes.
