WELCOME TO FAITH INCLUSION NETWORK

Our goal is to connect people with disabilities and their families to faith communities that are welcoming and genuinely want to include everyone.
We also want to help faith communities become more inclusive by connecting them with resources and providing networking opportunities at conferences and meetings throughout the year.
Letter from the Director
Dear Friend,

Welcome to the Faith Inclusion Network of Hampton Roads, VA website. Here we hope you will find local and national resources, a listing of local inclusive faith communities you may like to visit and inspiration in your efforts to include people with disabilities into the life of your congregations. Whatever or whoever brings you to this site, we hope to help you in some way to learn more about faith inclusion and perhaps even encourage you to become a part of our active, interfaith, non-profit organization.

During this time of social distancing and keeping safe, we recognize that as an organization, we need to think outside the box in order to continue to help and support our community. We are in the process of scheduling some carefully construed in person events as well virtual gatherings and presentations via Zoom. In fact, our bi-annual faith and disability conference, now re-named, “Community for ALL” will be held in February as a hybrid in-person and virtual conference. (February 26, 2021). Keep up on events via our monthly newsletter (email us to be added to our list) and Facebook page.

We, of course, are still available to consult on issues of faith and disability inclusion and encourage you to reach out as we all figure out ways to stay connected, especially with those in our communities affected by disability.

Blessings,
Karen Jackson
Executive Director, FIN
Michelle Munger
Associate Director, FIN
