Conferences

In the Community

WRC encourages individuals with disabilities and family members to be empowered and informed through participation in trainings and conferences offered within the special needs community.

WRC may fund for tuition or conference registration fees up to a maximum of $300 for trainings and/or conferences annually. For adults receiving WRC services, funding may include lodging and/or transportation costs when authorized. Funding for parents or caregivers does not cover the cost of lodging or transportation. Check with your Service Coordinator or the Westside Family Resource & Empowerment Center (WFREC) to inquire about training and conference opportunities.
