Your support launches Healthy Relationships

Everyone wants healthy and successful relationships. Your support makes it possible!

This fall, CPARC launched a new 15-week self-advocacy program called Healthy Relationships. Holly Turner, Director of Advocacy, said the first group “went well. Five individuals participated in the program and were able to share personal struggles or ask questions.”

As part of the Healthy Relationships program, CPARC advocates help individuals with intellectual disabilities learn and strengthen their understanding of personal and social boundaries. The group also discusses basic sexuality, human biology, and hygiene.

Because of you, individuals learn tips and tools that can ensure employment and relationship success.

“To have an Everyday Life, people need to understand how to interact safely and follow the many unwritten rules of our society,” Holly adds.

A second Healthy Relationships program kicks off after the New Year. Be sure to join us for this 15-week course, which begins January 23 and runs every Thursday from 5:30-7:30pm. For more information about the program or to register, contact Deb at 717-249-2611.
