Granite State Independent Living (GSIL) presents a FREE peer support group meeting: Nashua Community Advocates Peer Support Group
Exciting new opportunities from Granite State Independent Living [GSIL] to support people with disabilities. Pam Locke, with GSIL peer support, will introduce the new 'peer mentoring' and 'time bank' programs. We will discuss effective peer support and other resources for people with disabilities
GSIL Nashua Community Advocates Peer Support Group This cross-disability Peer Group is for people interested in engaging in disability awareness, community issues, civic participation and self & systems Advocacy. Some benefits of the GSIL Nashua Community Advocates Peer Group are: * To provide people in the community, especially persons with disabilities, Senior Citizens, and any others who would be interested, with resources and information as well as self-advocacy and independent living skills to become more empowered.
* To provide opportunities to share common experiences, challenges, and successes. These shared opportunities could offer hope, understanding, and knowledge to others looking to become more independent.
* The group is facilitated by peer members, who share many common concerns. The group is not run by a professional, although it may offer the benefit of guest speakers.
* The group is free and will always remain free. * Accommodations provided upon request (with a two (2) week notice).
