In order to reach as many parents and friends as possible, OE is encouraging all parents to bring a friend or another parent to the meeting. Guests are welcome at this event.

The Family and Friends Together meetings are part of an Opportunity Enterprises initiative, Family and Consumer Supports. The program provides support for parents, siblings, guardians and friends of consumers, as well as an outlet to be actively engaged with loved ones. It was created by Opportunity Enterprises as it prepares for the increasing number of challenged individuals seeking services as they transition into new programs, the community or the workforce. The objective of this program is to better serve current and potential OE consumer families by sharing resources, information and volunteer opportunities.
