Disability advocate to speak Sept. 22.


The Milton Disability Awareness Committee (MDAC) will present a disability advocate who focuses on home and community-based services for children with special health care needs and developmental disabilities at MDAC's monthly Community Link Sept. 22 at 7 p.m.

This open forum will take place in City Council Chambers at Milton's City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway, Suite 107E (click here for directions). Everyone is invited, and there is no RSVP required.

Joseph Sarra, director of family support services for Atlanta-based Childkind, will discuss the various issues facing families struggling to understand Medicaid. He will also explain Childkind's services, which include family support (Medicaid waiver services, equipment, supplies); placement (skilled family foster care, connection to needed community resources); and transition support (insuring that parents are fully equipped to provide their children a safe, stable and loving home).
