Community Support Group

Day – Every Monday 

Time – 6-7 pm 

Zoom link – https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87515436174 

Living in a mountain town provides the rare opportunity to experience nature, participate in a plethora of outdoor activities, and work alongside like-minded people. A lot of times, it’s smiles, rainbows, sunshine, costume-wearing, and powder days. And sometimes, it’s challenging. Affordable housing, healthcare, small-town dynamics, low salaries, high food cost, and more can dampen the spirit and cause anxiety.  

Many people find hope and feel better by discussing struggles and problems with others. If the opportunity to talk with others sounds appealing, we encourage you to participate in this free weekly Community Support Group led by Jennie Thomas, a local licensed social worker and counselor. Create greater connections with others facing similar issues!
