Facilitated by: Elizabeth Bostic

They say it takes a village to raise a child, but in a hybrid-digital-distanced world, our “villages” look different than years past. More than ever, we need the right supports in place for ourselves and families. Come learn about different support systems, how to build them and keep them strong! Participants will be able to identify different types of support systems and type of support they need in their lives. Participants will identify at least 1 support person in their life and identify how to connect with additional supports. Participants will review their current relationship with each support person/entity and come up with a plan for ongoing healthy communication with those individuals.
