We held our 5th Annual SCO Conference Oct. 23-24th bringing together direct support professionals, human services workers, clinicians and leaders from programs throughout SCO to network, learn and be inspired. The theme: Weaving Excellence: A Fabric of Best Practice, was highlighted in breakout sessions and by Dr. Bertice Berry, sociologist, comedian and best-selling author, who keynoted the event. NYS Assemblyman Edward Ra was also in attendance, offering his continued support for the work we do. Thank you Dr. Berry, Assemblyman Ra, our workshop leaders, and to all of our attendees and to the Taft Foundation for their continued support of this conference! Photos
