Each month, Connections for Independent Living hosts several peer support groups. These informal groups offer enrichment in physical and mental health, socialization, stress management, and disability education. All support groups are free of cost to Connections consumers.
Knowledgeable Connections staff members coordinate these voluntary groups, but it is the members who actively participate and guide the conversation. Participants offer support, teach valuable skills, and share useful information. Through active participation, consumers can overcome barriers, handle the stress of living with a disability, and gain awareness of resources that are helpful in maintaining personal independence through these interactions and tools.
Refer to our calendar as to which peer group will be in-person or hybrid.
Please join us.
