Events to keep people connected

Sometimes the best connection people can make is with a peer – someone who has been there and can share about it.

In tjh Post Falls office we are focusing on helping people be healthier. Due to disability related limitations some people may lack the time, energy, or ability to prepare nutritious meals. They can also be taking medications that can contribute to weight gain. Healthy Meals on a Budget is a FREE workshop being presented on February 19th at 10:00 am. Attendees will learn tips on planning and preparing healthy foods on a budget. They will discuss what foods to eat when you are sick and find a list of healthy foods for around $2.  Get free recipe samples and handouts to take home. You can call 208-457-3891 for more information.


In the DAC NW Lewiston office they will be hosting the 8th annual Spring Fling Dance. This all inclusive event is for young adults with disabilities and their friends and families and provides an opportunity for youth to connect. Youth with disabilities often face marginalization and social, economic and civic disparities as compared to others due to a range of factors from stigma to inaccessible environment. This dance is fully accessible and they can dance to music played by a DJ, enjoy games, prizes and more. The dance is free and refreshments will be served. Anyone is welcome, it’s March 13th, 6-8:30 pm at the Lewiston Community Center. For more information you can call Molly at 208-746-9033
