  1. Hello Peter,
    I know you I have met you while I lived in Massachusetts. (Gardner)..through John Papp. 25 years ago.. What a wonderful surprise! My Client, whom I have worked with for past seven years , Debra Braiman.. she contacted your organization..(Brian Forsythe).. for Consult/info regarding her intents of publishing her book… on Identity Theft. She is Blind is on SSDI. I have researched for her… to relocate to Massachusetts where there are more resources for Blind community. She asked me to assist her with filling out the forms. (I could not locate such form for a consult referral for info regarding the WorkWithoutlimits. We are located in rural Eastern New York. I have been with the Disability movement for many many years. ILCHV. I formerly was with TONI WOLF at Employment Options Network, where I keynote the Deaf/HOH program at Employment Options. (YES, Club-house). I hold Toni very dear in my heart. as I was the FIRST in Massachusetts, to open Club-house services to Deaf and Hard of hearing. So, Yes, Toni & I go back… some years. I am SO TICKLED She is now Commissioner of MRC. And that this new Employment Network Innitiative is in full spring.! Congratulations! So, if I can find a required form that I will need for the referral for my Consumer/client to pursue her intents regarding your services. smiles… small world. I may just return to Massachusetts,.. where my Sons still reside. I’ll never retire from my devotion working in the Disability Field /civil rights activist. Peace & Blessings Peter.
