A Message from the Director
Welcome to the BCSS CAPE Resource Center. The Center serves the special needs community by providing access to information, resources, services, educational opportunities, and referrals. Learn about the many features, services and benefits that the Center brings to the special needs community.
As the summer starts to fade, the fall brings some exciting new changes. Stay tuned for our new look! We open the fall season with our always popular Parent to Parent Exchange monthly meetings. The first one meets Wednesday, September 13th at 7:00pm. The remainder of the year the meeting is held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7:00pm. These monthly parent support meetings are geared to parents with youth 14 years and older, who have developmental and other disabilities. Doreen Moran leads the group and wears the hat of both professional in the field and parent of two young adults with disabilities. Hope you can participate - drop in when you can.
Later in the month, on Tuesday, September 25th at 6:30, we will hold a Financial and Legal Planning for Individuals with Special Needs information session. This panel discussion will address the need to plan for your child’s future, the steps to take in managing your personal finances and the legal issues required for the current and future care of your child with special needs. Bring your questions because our legal and financial planning experts will have answers.
Please check back in the next few weeks for our fall workshops and flyers. Register at https://cape.bergen.org.
We hope to see you soon!
