Coffee and Chat


Join our interactive support group and meet other families facing similar struggles. Families meet and typically discuss a topic related to caring for a child who is struggling. Many participants leave with new ideas and strategies, feel refreshed and know that they are not alone. The group is facilitated by a mental health professional.

Sessions are free and open to the public, but registration is required (choose from dates/times below).

Translation is available with registration.

Free child care is available, but children must be registered separately. We are able to accommodate children with special concerns. If you have a question about how we can help your child feel comfortable, please contact us at info@connectingforkids.org.

    Come join other parents of Connecting for Kids for a fun evening out. This isn't a fundraiser, just a fun night out with other moms and dads. CFK will buy some appetizers but you will BYOD (Buy your own drink or dinner). Whether you are a single parent or a couple, everyone is welcome. Come and meet some other parents in a casual setting.

    We are asking parents to register for the event so we can make sure we have enough chairs. We will be in a private room so it will be easy to talk and meet other parents! 

    Need a sitter? Bay Presbyterian is hosting a respite night from 6:00 to 8:30 pm the same evening so sign up with them for free babysitting. They take siblings too! http://www.baypres.org/events/respite

    Free child care is available, but a separate child care registration (in addition to an adult registration) is required.
