Adult Empowerment Retreat
THIS IS WHAT EMPOWERMENT LOOKS LIKE:
Thank you to all who participated in our
2019 Adult Empowerment Retreat Weekend
September 20-22, 2019 * Crowne Plaza, Edison NJ
We would like to thank the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation for their generous Quality of Life grant award for this year’s retreat!
The Adult Empowerment Retreat is an annual unique, peer-led, fun and interactive three-day conference for adults with disabilities, 21 and over, which is designed to increase independence, socialization, self-esteem and overall growth. Workshops and other activities explore health & wellness, relationships and intimacy, disability justice and other important topics.
Because the retreat is developed, coordinated and facilitated by individuals with disabilities, it provides participants the opportunity to gather in a safe space to discuss the impact that disability-related issues have on their lives, both as an individual and as a community.
We would like to thank our wonderful Workshop/Session Leaders:
