From your home! Virtually attend from any smart phone, tablet, laptop or computer.

All of our virtual (online) programs are offered through Zoom. It is a free service with a downloadable app for your smart phone, tablet or you can go online. Some sessions will have video chat options – which we encourage because seeing familiar faces can help reduce isolation and increase your mental health. For sessions without video chat options, please use the chat feature to type in your questions.

We will be actively troubleshooting throughout the web-conference. Text 619-325-9401 if you have any technical difficulties and we will try to help you get back into the web-conference. We encourage everyone to start logging in at 5:25 pm so that we have time to help you troubleshoot and you will still be eligible for the dinner.
