COVID-19 Update: Classes Moving Online in the Spring

Our community means everything to us, and we hope you are safe and healthy. Because we are not permitted to have in-person support groups during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will begin offering virtual classes online in Spring 2020 using the video-conferencing platform Zoom. (Instructions on using Zoom and a video explainer on how to join a meeting.) Sign up for the upcoming virtual Family-to-Family class or the virtual Peer-to-Peer class (classes are free, but registration is required).
