Southeastern MA Legislative Breakfast


On Friday morning, January 23, 2015, The Arc of the South Shore hosted the Southeastern MA Legislative Breakfast in partnership with GROW Associates, Inc., Friendship Home, Inc. and The Brockton Area Arc.
  The breakfast was held at Lombardo’s in Randolph.

With over 200 attendees, including more than 12 state legislatures, we had the opportunity to discuss FY16 priorities:  keeping families together, promoting work and self sufficiency and Autism support and services.  We had some wonderful speakers addressing the very important issues legislatures will be voting on.  But, most importantly, we were enriched by listening to the self advocates and  parents of the inidividuals we serve discuss just how vital these services are and the impact of these services in their day to day lives.  A big thank you to all of our legislatures for taking the time to come out and participate in this very important event.
