As a followup to the awareness building we achieved during Invisible Disabilities Awareness Week in October, we are holding another panel discussion--this time featuring caregivers. Caregivers are the heroes who provide unending love and support, carrying family members through difficult illnesses/disabilities. Please Join our online Zoom gathering with Caregivers to receive encouragement and support as a caregiver, or to come alongside caregivers. It will be held Wednesday, December 9th at 7pm. Register here. Panelists: David Akers, Nancy Kamalski, Bruce McFarling, Holly Miller, Erin Watts will share stories, tips and suggestions on how to support caregivers.
If you are a caregiver or if you have faced a disability or an invisible disability such as Alcoholism, ADD, ADHD, Anxiety, Depression, Dyslexia, Learning Disabilities, Lupus, and/or Lyme Disease, to name a few (for a broader list click here), the Care Team invites you to complete the confidential survey below.

To receive help with a project at your home in the future, or would like to receive a meal or care or contact, use the following form or email email@example.com. (Many caregivers and people with disabilities find everyday tasks daunting.)
To learn more about invisible disabilities and what it looks like to support our SFCers with them, we held a Zoom panel on Invisible Disabilities. One may request access to the recording. Here are resources shared by some of our first panelists. Al Davis writes about living with an invisible disability in a past Fed Family newsletter.
