Now in its eighth year, Saturday’s Inspiring Abilities Expo, sponsored by Families United for Support and Encouragement, brought families with children with special needs from all over central Indiana under one roof to connect with service providers, agencies, nonprofits and product vendors. This year, the expo featured nearly 60 exhibitors.

In addition to vendors and exhibitors, the expo featured several experts who consulted with area families about topics ranging from nutrition tips to understanding Medicaid waiver services.
