About CONNECT Coffee, Tea and WE chat support:
CONNECT groups will meet three times each week with a different focus for each session. Thursdays from 6-7:30pm will be a chat-focused, supportive time to share what’s on your mind, and have some focused discussion on a specific topic.
Coffee, Tea and WE is a gently moderated time that allows people to share what’s going on in their lives, connect with others, and feel support during these tough times.
Groups offer opportunities to connect with new and old friends, reduce isolation and loneliness, and have some fun in the process!
