Event description

Description

All of us are interested in a better community where all people have an opportunity for accessible and affordable homes, jobs or meaningful daytime opportunities and lifestyles of their choice. In spite of our many years of work on this goal, the outcomes in this area are still not satisfactory for people who are vulnerable due to disability or other compromises. Many of these vulnerable people and their families find themselves in isolated situations with limited options for friendships and important social relationships. This presentation takes a close look at the reasons why our systems have not been more successful in these goals, defines and delineates the concept of social capital, and offers a community building perspective designed to shift the culture to be more inclusive and supportive to all people.

Objectives:

1. Participants will understand the historical development related to disability and how people are devalued in society.

2. Participants will be introduced to the cultural perspective.

3. Major aspects of culture and community will be overviewed.

4. The importance of Social Capital will be explored.
