Family Support Groups
The Family Support Group provides leadership development and peer-support to families. The group meets at the Center bi-weekly to attend workshops and listen to professional speakers. Meanwhile, we provide well-structured childcare and snacks for children in an adjoining room. We also provide a group specifically for mothers. Our Mother's Support Group provides a safe space for communal support amongst women in the community. In the process of enjoying this space of connection, solidarity, and expression, our participants also have the opportunity to create a genuine network--where the exchange of information about jobs, rooms for rent, or other important activities within the community can take place. In our support group our mothers learn that help comes in emotional and social forms, and that seeking and providing such support, by way of camaraderie, is not only beneficial, but uniquely empowering.
