PA Development Disabilities Workshop
PASSi's Vietnamese/Chinese and Cambodian Community Coordinators recently held two outreach seminars for the Cambodian and Chinese/Vietnamese communities. These events provided attendees with an overview of the different types of disabilities and what support is available to help disabled adults live independent lives as members of the community. The community coordinators also discussed the steps required to apply for services. They also discussed the steps required to apply for services and PASSi's ability to provide linguistically and culturally targeted supportive services for disabled adults. Several families have already expressed interest in PASSi's programs. Dana Thompson, a program officer with the PA Developmental Disabilities Council, attended the Cambodian seminar.
