Teri’s Thoughts

Greetings all! Our Fall Family to Family and Peer to Peer courses are in full swing, and I wanted to share some really great news with all of you. We piloted a project this year that allowed online signups for our Family to Family courses, and we had resounding success! All our classes were filled to capacity, and we have a wait list already for our Spring classes. We had no idea that there would be that huge of a response, so we are working hard to bring in more classes and more facilitators. We apologize to those that are on our wait list; we hope that the Spring classes will still meet your needs. In the meantime, we encourage you to check out our schedules for our support groups on our website at! Thank you for your patience!
