Special Needs Housing and Supports
UU Wellesley hosts a monthly program for parents of children with special needs, to discuss housing and other supports that their children may benefit from as they become adults. Each session focuses on a different topic, such as work, caregiving, Social Security, and the Section 8 housing program. There are usually more than 100 parents who attend each session, and some parents come year after year, because these topics are confusing and the details often change. The program is facilitated by Michael Weiner, a parent (outside our congregation) of a special needs son and financial planner who has made it his life's work to help parents plan for their children as they age. The programs are free and open to the public. Please RSVP HERE if you plan to attend. Fall 2017 dates are 10/12 and 12/14.
