Virtual Community Coffee Break

 

 

Fridays, May 29th | June 12th | June 26th

10:30 – 11:00 AM

Anyone else missing the quick chats where you run into a parent, friend or teacher at appointments, in the community or at school? I don’t think I realized how much we got from those waiting room check-ins with other parents, hallway conversations with teachers and the comforts of an in-person doctor’s visit.

We wanted to recreate these conversations virtually.

We urge you to grab a cup of coffee and connect with others in the community. This group is open to parents, educators, providers, advocates and others involved in the care of children and youth with special health needs and disabilities. Join us for some casual conversation and to be connected.

We will try to keep it short and sweet to 30 minutes but will also go with the flow of the group.

Parent Groups

 

 

One in Five Minnesota families with children has a child with adisability or chronic health condition. We do not have to feel alone.

Family Voices of MN offers a variety of parent groups including in-person and virtual offerings. Visit our Parent Groups page for more information about upcoming parent group meetings.
