Online – Parent to Parent Lunch & Learn

P2P Lunch-n-Learn – The P2P Lunch-n-Learn is a dedicated time for parents, caregivers, and providers to access presentations and training from PAVE programs and local Pierce County service providers. Presentation/training topics will vary based on the expressed needs of families in the local community. This group takes place during lunchtime, allowing parents to learn while enjoying a meal in a relaxed and informal setting.  These lunch-n-learns occur virtually and July 25th lunch & learn will teach you all about Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

The workshop will be on disability benefits and the disability application process. The following questions will also be addressed:

• How to use your “my Social Security” online account and other online services.
• What is Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits and how do you qualify?
• What do you need to report when you receive SSI?
• What other Social Security programs are available, and who qualifies?

  • Trainings: The trainings are designed to be interactive and engaging. Participants have opportunities to ask questions, participate in discussions, and share their own experiences.
  • Inclusive Environment: The training sessions are inclusive and welcoming, catering to parents with diverse backgrounds and experiences
