We are hosting an additional meeting if you missed us on July 27th! This is a come-and-go format so stop by anytime from 6:00pm-8:00pm. We hope to see you there!

Masks are strongly recommended for individuals without a COVID-19 vaccination or as an extra precaution. The staff and consultant team will provide masks and hand sanitizer for participants. If you feel unwell or think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, stay tuned for more online options.
