exhibitors 06-22

The Path Ahead is a collaborative special project produced by Lancaster and Lebanon County partner’s networks of the Pennsylvania Link to Aging and Disability Resources.

The youth transition summit – free to attend – begins at 8:30 am with registration inside the front entrance of the Winter Center. From 9:00 am to 2:00 pm, the program includes several speakers; panel discussions; networking and information exchange with the Link partner-exhibitors.

At the conclusion of the speakers and breakout sessions, 2:00 pm, everyone is invited to a free screening of the important WITF-produced film, I GO HOME, the story of Pennhurst State School and Hospital.

The “one-hour original documentary on the history of people with intellectual disability” is the story of a period in history during which “children with intellectual disability were not allowed in public schools. Parents were told to send their children with intellectual disability away to institutions – that it was best for the child, the family and the community.”

If you need more information or require accommodation, contact the Link coordinator by email at blllink@mail.com or text or call 717.380.9714.
