We’re Coming Together...Again…To Learn, Share and Continue the Dialogue. Nonotuck Resource Associates, Inc. is proudly hosting the AFC Summit 3 at Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA on Friday, May 17, 2019.
The Adult Family Care (AFC) program supports over 10,000 adults across the state, with over 100 provider agencies providing these supports.
The goal of the AFC Summit has been to provide an educational and supportive forum for Adult Family Care provider organizations to discuss, develop and share knowledge. Central to the Summit’s mission is imparting best practice approaches through collaboration with trainers & presenters who have demonstrated expertise in their areas.
We’ve continued the dialogue through the formation of quarterly regional AFC Roundtable discussion groups. These groups have expanded to over 170 members from over 60 AFC organizations and are now hosted in four regions across the state; Western, Central, North East and Eastern Massachusetts.
Our planning committee is hard a work developing a workshop line up that touches on hot topics you have told us you’d like to learn more about. Keep and eye out in the coming weeks to our webpage and Facebook pages for a sneak peak of workshops and presenters and updates on registration

Legal Disclaimer: Individual provider agencies have unique delivery and documentation systems; the goal of the AFC Roundtable is to discuss, develop and share knowledge. Best Practices, as a shared value amongst individual provider agency systems, is central to the core purpose of the AFC Roundtables. Each session welcomes and will build upon open, thoughtful dialogue. The desired outcome of the AFC Roundtable meetings is to continue the dialogue that encompasses professional awareness, forges professional relationships and offers support and assistance from and for all willing providers. Individual agency and any future business speakers are presenting under these guidelines.
