We are Here: Parents & Caregivers Meet-Up

Date: Monday, December 7
Time: 1:00-2:00pm ET
Location: Zoom Location

As Parents and Caregivers we are here for our children, families, jobs, and our communities. We are also here for each other. You are not alone. Parents and Caregivers have taken on additional responsibilities caring for children and other family members while balancing work lives and/or the stresses of furlough or salary cut. Join us for this 60-minute session. It’s a safe space to share tips and tricks for getting through the day and discussing the successes, triumphs, and challenges big and small. We are here!

Check out this song We are here by Alicia Keys for some inspiration!

This event is free and open to all, but advance registration is required.
