Virtual COVID-19 Support Groups

  • Baby, Let's Talk - Every Tuesday from 1-2 p.m., beginning February 16
    • Parenting is hard in general- but welcoming a new baby in the middle of a pandemic is unprecedentedly hard. That’s why Project Renew has developed this support group. Each week will have a loose theme, from changing birth expectations to setting boundaries with family, to isolation and beyond. The group is an opportunity to connect with other families in the same position, share experiences and receive
      support.
  • High Risk, High Anxiety - Every Thursday from 6:30-8 p.m., beginning February 18
    • High Risk, High Anxiety is a weekly support group for high-risk individuals as they navigate life during COVID-19. Each week will have a different theme, from juggling work expectations with health needs, family dynamics, setting and enforcing boundaries, to the inability to “get back to normal” as a high-risk individual and more. Join us for support and connection with other high-risk individuals.
  • Educator Support Group - Monday, February 22 from 5-6:30 p.m., and will run the third Monday of each month
    • It’s not the school year you thought it was going to be - let’s talk about it. Featuring a short presentation on the importance of hope in disaster recovery, followed by discussion. Hear how your peers are coping with this unprecedented school year, and receive support and connection with other educators.
  • Grades 6, 7, 8 Support Group - Mondays from 6:30-7:30 p.m., beginning March 1
  • Grades 9, 10, 11 Support Group - Wednesdays from 6:30-7:30 p.m., beginning March 3
    • There’s no denying 2020 was a difficult year- it’s been tough for all of us, in very different ways. At Project Renew, we recognize that our children are struggling. In response to this, beginning in March, Project Renew will be offering TEAMS virtual support platforms for adolescents. With emotional and social wellness in mind, Grades 6, 7 and 8 will compose one group, with Grades 9, 10 and 11
      composing another. The support sessions will be a four-part series with carefully chosen topics, incorporating wellness, signs of COVID blues, coping skills and resilience building across all age levels. Topics may change based on participant needs and wishes. The sessions will be fun, engaging and designed to build connection between peers, providing a safe space for adolescents to be heard, understood, and supported.
