EPIC Launches Parenting Support Group
JUNE 1, 2020 - EPIC - Every Person Influences Children has started an online support group for parents, as families everywhere continue to navigate consequences of the past ten weeks.
"Just because we've been doing this awhile, doesn't mean it's getting easier," says Tara N. Burgess, EPIC's Executive Director. "Parents are still navigating homeschooling, unemployment or trying to work from home, caring for their families and potentially dealing with health issues. They need as much support as possible, and that's what this group aims to do."
The support group will be hosted every Wednesday at 7pm via Zoom teleconferencing and is open to all parents. Participants will need a free Zoom account to join the group, but there is no cost associated with participating.
Meeting ID: 920 6413 0311
"There is not really a set agenda for the group discussion," says Jamie Rackl, EPIC's Director of Family Engagement and Professional Development. "We will see what needs arise for parents as they join, and utilize the collective power of community to talk through different issues."
Rackl will facilitate the group. The first session is scheduled for Wednesday, June 3 at 7pm.
