                         PARENTING JOURNEY  

The C.R.I.B. facilitated our first virtual Parenting Journey. In Parenting Journey a small group of parents met for seven weeks to engage in hands-on activities and guided discussions that promoted resiliency and building strong relationships and communication between parents and children. Our final session, we met in-person and celebrated graduation with a lunch at a local ENY restaurant. At the graduation, we celebrated and honored the participants accomplishments and strengths. Congratulations! 

                                        SELF-CARE PROJECT

This spring, we launched our Self-Care Project to support mental-wellness in our community. Some of the offerings that community members were able to enjoy were Meditation Mondays and Paint & Sip. Each of our popular Paint & Sip sessions included the music and artwork of a music artist chosen by the community. Meditation Mondays consisted of 30 minute guided meditations hosted by commuity members. Participants practiced stress-reducing techniques such as mindfulness and deep breathing to start their week with greater clarity, focus and positive energy.
