Vinfen Celebration of Family Partnerships

Each year, Vinfen honors families, advocates, self-advocates, and staff who have made a difference in the lives of the people we serve at the Vinfen Celebration of Family Partnerships. At Vinfen, we transform lives together and families and other caregivers are an integral part of this transformation.

Vinfen will host the 12th Annual Celebration of Family Partnerships on October 2, 2019 at the Four Points by Sheraton in Norwood, MA.

The evening will be hosted by former WCVB-TV’s Emmy-winning anchorwoman Susan Wornick. Keynote speaker Jordan Burnham is a nationally recognized speaker and advocate working to end the negative stereotyping associated with experiencing a mental health diagnosis. He is a survivor of a suicide attempt during his senior year in high school and shares his powerful story of fighting depression and anxiety and finding recovery. Jordan has been featured on CNN, CBS, and ESPN.

The event is open to people with psychiatric conditions, intellectual and developmental disabilities, brain injuries, and behavioral health challenges; their families and loved ones; staff at nonprofit health and human service organizations and state agencies; citizen advisory boards; and those connected to the work that we do.

If you and your loved ones would like to join us, please RSVP by Monday, September 23 by contacting Amy Kabilian at 781-626-5080 or kabiliana@vinfen.org.
