Vinfen’s 10th Annual Celebration of Family Partnerships @ Tiffany Ballroom at the Four Points Sheraton in Norwood
Oct 12 @ 5:45 pm – 9:00 pm

Vinfen will host the 10th Annual Celebration of Family Partnerships on October 12, 2017.

The event honors the extraordinary family members of the people we serve who are committed to advocacy; educational, vocational and leadership activities; and work tirelessly to improve services for people with psychiatric conditions, intellectual and developmental disabilities, brain injuries, and behavioral health challenges. This event is an opportunity to raise awareness, reduce prejudice and discrimination, build partnerships to improve care, and encourage family and community involvement.

The evening will be hosted by former WCVB-TV’s Emmy-winning anchorwoman Susan Wornick and will feature our Keynote Speaker Stacia Bissell. After a bicycle accident left Stacia with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), her career as a public school educator came to an end. But with encouragement from her Speech-Language Coach, the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts, former co-workers, friends, and family, Stacia began her career as a public speaker and advocate. Stacia is also a co-facilitator of the BIA-MA Northampton brain injury support group and a founding member of the Berkshire Brain Injury Collaborative, providing professional development to teachers on “return-to-learn” strategies after a student suffers a concussion.

If you are interested in learning more about the event or would like to attend, please contact Amy Kabilian at 781-626-5080 or kabiliana@vinfen.org. The event is open to people we serve, their families and loved ones, and Vinfen staff.

Dec 11 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

At Vinfen, we recognize that we are transforming lives together. We support and help the individuals we serve to transform their lives, together with other caregivers, community resources, and most importantly – with their families. Families are the most important resource of information, guidance, and support, for their loved one in our care.

Our Family Advisory Councils were formed to provide mutual support, education and assistance for families, and to encourage input from families in the development of the Vinfen’s programs, policies, and plans. Family members of people with psychiatric conditions, intellectual and developmental disabilities, brain injuries, and behavioral health challenges and their advocates have a unique and important perspective on program services and disability policies.

The Councils are committed to making a real difference. Members provide guidance on a wide range of initiatives and projects such as developing staff training that promotes the principles of family self-direction and partnership, coordinating family educational forums and networking events, and creating new policies and procedures that strengthen the partnership between families and Vinfen to support their loved ones.

Any family member of a person with a psychiatric condition, intellectual and developmental disability, brain injury, or behavioral health challenge is encouraged to join. This includes parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, grandparents, guardians, and other loved ones. As a member, you will develop new skills and acquire knowledge that will enhance your ability to act as an effective family advocate and leader. You will learn from other family members’ experiences. You will also create change in policy and program development and achieve important outcomes that will make a difference for families.

For information about the Vinfen Family Advisory Council for loved ones with intellectual or developmental disabilities or brain injuries, contact Mary Beth Vargus at 617-441-1869 or vargusm@vinfen.org.
