SESSION INFO:« Back to all events
Family Hang Outs are a safe space for families and caregivers to come together and have a conversation for support, camaraderie, inspiration, trouble-shooting, and sharing what’s hard. Some of these sessions are by theme/topic and others are for general conversation and engagement. Whatever you might be feeling right now — overwhelmed, sadness, fear, anxiety — you are not alone.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Family Support Institute of BC (FSI) is a provincial not-for-profit society committed to supporting families who have a family member with a disability. FSI is unique in Canada and the only grass roots family to family organization that has a broad volunteer base.
All FSI Zoom sessions can be accessed by telephone only if access to computers and/or internet is a barrier. If you need assistance registering for any session, please call our office at 1-800-441-5403.
As a provincial organization FSI acknowledges that our work spans across all of the traditional, ancestral, and unceded Indigenous territories in BC. Therefore, we respectfully honour all First Nations, Inuit and Métis people, as well as their ancestors, who have lived here and cared for these lands. It is with gratitude that we can live, learn and do our work in the province now known as British Columbia.
