Realtors have always said that success is all about location.
This holds true for many young people and their families as they try to access services and programs from very rural communities.
This session will feature success stories used as case studies to help participants consider their own opportunities to overcome the challenges of rural locations.
Understanding the practical realities while also learning about resources and options can help agencies better serve clients regardless of location.
