Dear NFADB Members,
The past several weeks have presented all of us with personal health and family concerns never before seen. In this environment, staying connected- for information, resources, planning, and emotional reasons-is more important than ever. At NFADB, we are committed to being a reliable association to you and your family in difficult times, just as we are in good times. We know you are the frontline in supporting your loved ones and individuals with deaf-blindness and NFADB wants to support you now more than ever.
The overwhelming news on the coronavirus can be confusing and frightening to all of us. We can’t know precisely when the coronavirus will be contained and familiarity restored. Until then, please be assured that the NFADB Board of Directors are available to our members. As a reminder, you can connect to NFADB firstname.lastname@example.org anytime, and directly reach any of the board members by using their first name @nfadb.org. We are sharing resources and information via our NFADB Face Book https://www.facebook.com/NFADB/ and Instagramhttps://www.instagram.com/nfadborg/ to keep our families and community connected and continue to share information.
NFADB exists to empower the voices of families with individuals who are deaf-blind and advocate for their unique needs. We are in the deaf-blind community together and we are here for our members!
Be safe and be well.
Patti McGowan, NFADB President and Board of Directors
