What is the GIFT?


The GIFT: Gathering Information for Transitions is an interactive workshop exclusively from VillagesOKC. In the workshop we talk through difficult questions, learn about options and write solutions for the “what if’s” in the future.

A facilitator guides you through 12 key areas most impacted by a move, crisis or transition. Time saving techniques are taught that provide rapid access to key information when needed.

Small-groups meet for four, 1.5-hour sessions, that allow interaction and develop a sense of community.

Participants document their own personal, legal, medical, financial, real estate, passwords, personal preferences, emergency contacts and crisis plan. Everyone is encouraged to hold a family meeting afterwards.

A binder is provided for participants to keep all their information. After the workshop is completed a fillable document is available on USB drive for easy accessibility and storage. As your information changes, just update your fillable document on your computer and print out a new page for your book!
