JOURNEY SKILLS PODCAST (5/13/19) – LISTEN – For most of us being part of a community is essential for our wellbeing and often starts where we live. This week’s guest is Jillian Copeland from Main Street, an organization not just building a community but actually building the space where that community can grow and thrive.
However, as Jillian explains, Main Street is much more than about building an apartment block where people with and without additional needs will live. Main Street is about creating opportunities for independent living, for work, for socializing and for learning from each other. The best communities are those where everyone feels an equal part of that community and Main Street is certainly creating that kind of community.
The Journey Skills podcast is hosted by Debra Caldow, an Australian mother of a child with additional needs living in the UK. For more information about Journey Skills, visit http://www.journeyskills.com.
