County’s Popular Disabilities Awareness Day Set for Oct. 9th

Salem, NJ – The Salem County Office of Disability Services is hosting the County’s popular Disabilities Awareness Day on October 9th and in a larger location this year – in the gym at Salem Community College.

Vendors and exhibitors will be on display from 9 am until presentations begin at 11:30 am, followed by lunch at 12:30 pm. This year’s speakers include a representative from Begley Law Group on “Special Needs Trusts,” and Marikay Green from the Salem County Office of Aging on “Medicaid Long Term Service and Support.” In addition, the American Dance Wheels will delight the audience with dance demonstrations on the Rumba and Salsa.

“Last year, we had record participation,” said Freeholder Director Julie Acton. “The Salem County Freeholders are very committed to providing this opportunity to learn about resources and programs available to assist individuals and their families.”

The conference is offered to persons with special needs, along with family, friends, support staff, and advocates of those with special needs living in Salem County. Disability Awareness Day began in 2004 as part of a County effort to increase awareness of resources.

This year, Mid Atlantic States Career & Education Center and Mobility Works are co-sponsors of the conference.

Freeholder Bob Vanderslice stated, “We are grateful for the growing interest in this important event and for the sponsorship of Mid Atlantic and Mobility Works to make this an exciting day.”

There is no charge to attend the conference, but registration is required for attendance and the luncheon. Please call the Office of Disability Services at 856-935-7510, extension 8311 or extension 8622 to register.

Transportation can be supplied by the Salem County Office by calling and scheduling your ride. Proper documentation is required.
