Who are Community Connectors?
A Community Connector is a person who shares your and PLAN’s values. Community Connectors range in age from their mid-twenties to their early seventies. Some are relatives of people with disabilities. Some have a background in community support, but most do not. All Community Connectors have a knack for seeing the gifts of your relative, and the enthusiasm to inspire others to see it too.
What do Community Connectors do?
The fundamental task of the Community Connector is to support your family member as they make connections with as many like-minded people as possible as they work toward building authentic friendships. Once these friendships are built, the Community Connector formalizes a group of three to five people who share the purpose of ensuring a safe and secure future for your relative and to contribute to the quality of their life now.
