About Friendships and Community

You may have a lovely home in a nice community, but you could still be lonely. Some people with disabilities have experienced abuse and discrimination, and have been not allowed to have ordinary opportunities to be part of community life and to form friendships.

Building friendships and community can be a difficult, slow process, but everyone can be a great citizen and form wonderful friendships and loving partnerships. This module will introduce you to friendships and community.
