Brookline Housing Authority decision regarding how income from a special needs trust should be calculated by the public housing authority, and gave her insights regarding how the Section 8 program works in Massachusetts.

The Memorandum of Intent Webinar

For parents of children with special needs: Come draft your Memorandum of Intent with Karen B. Mariscal, in this interactive webinar sponsored by the Arc of Massachusetts, Tuesday, September 19, noon - 1:00 pm.


How will your trustee or relative know how to best care for your loved one when you are gone or incapacitated? Create a document that can be used to describe your child’s health care and therapeutic needs, identify lifestyle preferences and provide contact information for doctors, therapists and teachers. It also can be used to convey insights into your child’s personality, likes and dislikes, and history that future caregivers might not easily gain on their own. At the end of this webinar, you will have a document that answers some of these questions, and that you can continue working on it in your own time.
