Arc’s Kev Txhawb Group Offers Connections and Support for Hmong Families
ST. PAUL (Sept. 17, 2010) – Hmong families who have a child or other family member with an intellectual or developmental disability are invited to Kev Txhawb, a free Family Access Group from Arc Greater Twin Cities. Kev Txhawb reflects the language and culture of the Hmong community and welcomes all family members. Meetings begin with social time that allows families to get acquainted. Then adults hear presentations on topics such as disability services and special education, while children enjoy fun activities.
Kev Txhawb meets on the fourth Saturday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to noon at the Association for the Advancement of Hmong Women in Minnesota, 1101 N. Snelling Ave., St. Paul. There is no charge to participate, but participants are asked to register in advance. To register or get more information, call Arc at 952-920-0855.
