Most of us probably know of at least one family where on member has special needs and need special care.   Often, it's the parents of a child with a mental or developmental disability.  As the parents get older, you might catch yourself wondering what will happen when those aging caregivers are no longer with us.  What will happen?  That's the subject for an upcoming program by the Arc of Calhoun County.

When We're Gone will happen in two free future planning workshops for families with children with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

Executive Director Leah Ortiz was a recent guest on the 95.3 WBCK Morning Show with Tim Collins and outlined the free programs.
