The Annual Family Cafe is the nation's largest cross-disability event. Last year's 20th Anniversary Family Cafe attracted some 11,480 participants.
Since 1998, The Annual Family Cafe has brought together thousands of individuals with disabilities and their family members for three days of information, training and networking each June. With a great range of individual breakout sessions, a packed Exhibit Hall with dozens of vendors, and a series of special events including Keynote speakers and The Governors’ Summit on Disabilities, The Annual Family Café offers families exposure to a wide range of public and private resources, opportunities to find support by networking with other families, and unprecedented access to policy-making officials.
The Family Cafe remains committed to connecting attendees with information and resources at minimal cost, so there is no registration fee for individuals with disabilities and their family members.
The Family Cafe also offers limited financial assistance to provide for the cost of hotel accommodations on-site at The Annual Family Cafe. Attendees can request assistance as part of the registration process.
FDSWF will have a table in the Exhibitors Hall, come by and say hello. We will be passing out information about Down Syndrome, Down Syndrome groups in Florida, and information about FDSWF, THE FRIENDS CENTER, and our upcoming Buddy Run & Walk.
