NWSRA Village

Welcome to NWSRA Village! NWSRA recognizes the benefit of sharing information about resources to assist family members of NWSRA participants. The purpose of NWSRA Village is to provide an online platform for NWSRA and participants' family members to communicate about resources that may be of assistance.

We have heard your voice! Through the Strategic Planning process, several parents expressed their desire for a way to better exchange information of this type with other NWSRA parents. NWSRA staff set out on a goal to increase access for parents and other family members through an easy to use, cost effective, mobile friendly site. The Facebook Group platform offers these capabilities and others that can help NWSRA families to connect. If you have any questions or would like more information about NWSRA Village, please contact Brian Selders at 847-392-2848, ext. 264 or e-mail him at bselders@nwsra.org. Please consider joining NWSRA Village on Facebook!
