HOSTING A HEART TO HEART
A Heart to Heart with Annandale Village is an opportunity for families, residents, and employees of Annandale Village to sit down with a small group of guests to discuss the mission of Annandale Village and its role in fostering independent and fulfilled lives for adults with developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injuries.
WHAT IS A HEART TO HEART?
While each event is unique to the person or group hosting, Heart to Heart aims to create a comfortable atmosphere through a more personal setting, allowing attendees to feel at ease sharing experiences, asking questions, and finding answers to post high-school opportunities for men and women with developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injuries. We understand that there is often limited information on this subject, and therefore we hope this opportunity provides you with the proper knowledge to consider Annandale Village as an option for your loved one or for someone you know who will soon seek our assistance.
Heart to Hearts are facilitated by Annandale Village employees, leaving little to no prep work needed by the host(s). Rather you and your guests will enjoy hearing from Annandale Village employees, residents and/or their families about our mission and the impact we have made in the lives of adults with developmental disabilities and traumatic brain injuries. In addition to hearing about Annandale’s history, mission, and available programs and services, you will hear first-hand from a resident and/or his or her family about their own personal experiences researching post-secondary options, as well as, their decision to choose Annandale Village.
WHO HOSTS HEART TO HEARTS?
Any person(s) who is/are interested in the quality of life of people with developmental disabilities or traumatic brain injuries make ideal hosts. Good examples are families of persons with developmental disabilities, persons in charge of special needs programs, or teachers who work with persons with developmental disabilities or traumatic brain injuries.
WHERE ARE HEART TO HEARTS HOSTED?
A Heart to Heart can be held just about anywhere, and location choice is left to the discretion of the host. An individual’s home, a meeting room at church or school, on Annandale’s campus, are all viable and excellent options.
