Session in Progress

Support Groups

Support Groups have gone Virtual…

Due to the pandemic, our support groups have changed. We believe in having opportunities for families to come together to learn and grow as a group. To be able to share experiences and not be judged for what is going on in their lives. Allegheny Family Support Groups offer families to take leadership roles in these groups. The lead parents are able to run support groups, they take on tasks to help engage and bring others to the table. We know that with the groups it can be difficult to attend and participate when there are children. To alleviate this barrier, we offer free childcare during the in-person groups as well as light refreshments.

The current groups are as follows

 

Triboro Support Group

The group is about learning and navigating services needed to care for families while networking to create new and productive relationships with others in the community. The group welcomes all who desire to attend and work together to empower each other, to strive for education, and to advocate for ourselves and our children.

Meetings occur on the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 5:30-7:00. PM
