Special Needs Potluck
Jun 28, 2013 10:06AM
No one understands Special Needs like those who experience them first-hand. That is why the Special Needs Nexus is hosting a kick-off Potluck Dinner on Friday, July 26th, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. to connect people through ideasharing, information, innovation and mutual support. The event will be held at Seaside Center for Spiritual Living in Encinitas, which is donating space and materials for the event.
Deb Johnson, lay coordinator of Seaside’s emerging Special Needs Ministry notes, “We’re excited to offer our facilities to the Special Needs Nexus. No one is without a ‘special need’ of some sort: It’s just that some needs are more socially acceptable and/or more readily accommodated than others. If we can help foster greater understanding and inclusion, we all benefit, personally and societally.”
If you are a person or family member of someone with special needs, you can RSVP for the July 26 potluck dinner at Meetup.com by searching “Special Needs Families, North County.” Childcare will be provided at the potluck by reservation only by calling Cathy at 925-548-6812.
Attendees are asked to bring a dish to share, along with your experiences and ideas.
“Not only will families with special needs have the opportunity to attend a potluck where they can share and support one another, they can also be part of creating initiatives and programs that broaden the boundaries of understanding and inclusion for people with Special Needs,” adds Johnson.
Location: 1613 Lake Dr., Encinitas, CA. For more information, call Deb Johnson at 760-496-9074 or visit Seasidecenter.com.
