Workshops & ON-SITE ACTIVITIES

Your center definitely pulled me through a rock bottom time....I loved sitting in your comfy ‘living room’, chatting and learning to knit. It was so nice to have a social activity to go to. Sometimes it took all my strength to get myself there - but once there I was always so happy I went....Extremely caring women there.
