FCBDD partners with group to offer free online activities throughout the year

The Franklin County Board of Developmental Disabilities is continuing its partnership with We Thrive Together, a nonprofit organization that offers an array of online programming for people served by Ohio county boards.

FCBDD has extended its countywide subscription so that all We Thrive Together programs are free to Franklin County residents until the end of the year. Online activities and programs can be accessed using a computer, tablet, Chromebook, smartphone or land-line telephone. We Thrive Together hosts events Monday through Saturday, starting at 10 a.m. and ending at about 9 p.m.

Registration for events can be completed at WeThriveTogether.org, by emailing [email protected] or by phone at 866-584.5640. After registering, participants receive a link to join the program. Organizers say there are tons of activities to choose from to help people “talk, laugh, play, sweat and connect” safely and easily online.

The Ohio Self Determination Association has been working with We Thrive Together to host weekly “Advocacy Wednesday” sessions, which will remain free across the state, said Dana Charlton, OSDA executive director.

We Thrive also features online activities such as cooking and exercise classes, games, discussion forums and even virtual tours.
