Transition Resource Fair

October 16, 2019 - Hadley Farms Meeting House - 41 Russell Street, Hadley

The Transition Resource Fair focuses on future options for high school students as they plan and prepare for their next steps once out of school. The event provides an opportunity to meet exhibitors from local and inspirational adult support service providers, and to hear from a panel of people from a variety of organizations who will share their individual expertise. The Fair is a free resource event open to the entire community.

Family Empowerment, The United ARC, and the Department of Developmental Services - Franklin Hampshire office, have created the new Family Support Collaborative of Franklin and Hampshire Counties to combine our resources and expertise for some regional projects. Together, as Family Support Collaborative of Franklin and Hampshire Counties, we will host the Transition Resource Fair in Hadley. A second Collaboration Transition Resource Fair will take place in the Athol area in the spring of 2020. We look forward to seeing you!
