Providing services for adults with developmental disabilities will be the focus of a meeting Thursday.
Co-hosted by the DeKalb County Transition Planning Committee and The Gracie Center, the meeting aims to bring together service providers to adults with developmental disabilities and families of those individuals so they can identify service needs not being met and discuss solutions, according to a news release from event organizers.
The Gracie Center is in its startup phase, with an aim of providing services to those falling through the gaps in the existing service net. The goal is to create day programs that will provide life-skills training, vocational training and other services to individuals with developmental disabilities who are 21 to 60.
Organizers hope officials from school districts and various service providers attend Thursday’s meeting. They also hope families of individuals with developmental disabilities provide input.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Five Seasons Room of the DeKalb County Community Outreach Building, 2500 N. Annie Glidden Road in DeKalb. For more information, contact Julie Craig at 815-970-1972 or Deanna Thornton at 815-762-3032.
