OHEL Bais Ezra Makes it Easier to â€śAccessâ€ť ServicesÂ
Last week, an informational evening was hosted by a focus group of devoted parents and professionals to discuss the needs of, and services available to, Families of children with developmental disabilities or delays. The informational session took place in Long Island, and the discussions were centered around the resources that OHEL and others can provide, such as support groups, respite programs, housing and day programs, as well as other resources available to parents.
There were families who were new to OHEL Bais Ezra services and learning to navigate the maze of services, as well as families with older children looking for transitioning of services, such as aging out of the school system and seeking employment and housing.
Speakers included David Mandel, CEO of OHEL, as well as Marc Katz, Director of Access at OHEL Bais Ezra. Batsheva Borenstein from The Friendship Circle, and Amy Eisenberg from Kulanu both spoke as well. After the speakers presented, there was an open discussion for families to further inquire about guidance and direction to secure such vital services.
"It was an amazing night of community education and outreachâ€ť said Marc Katz, Director of Access at OHEL Bais Ezra. He continued â€śThese services are lifelines to those in need, which further strengthens and maintains the family unit."Â
