WHAT IS THE TOGETHER CONFERENCE?
The Together Conference was founded by Jillian Palmiotto in 2016 when she recognized the need for faith communities to have step-by-step plans for creating inclusive special needs and disability ministries. The conference began with a small group of 35 pastors, ministry leaders, and volunteers gathering in a small chapel to learn how they could do a better job of welcoming and including people with disabilities. The Together Conference is unique in that it not only provides the "why" behind needing to include people with disabilities but also provides the "how" to make it happen. It is now recognized as a nationally known conference that is open to all faith communities, private schools, and counseling centers who need help in building inclusive infrastructure into their already existing systems and programs. Join us as we learn how to know better and do better with our disability community.
