Dive into health topics with local experts to best support children in care

We’re excited to announce an amazing new group focused on building your awareness of wellness resources that can support you and the children in your care. 

“Wellness Resource Wednesdays” is a free drop-in group meeting 6:30-8 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month, starting Feb. 16. There’s no need to register, just join us for whichever meetings fit your schedule!  

In partnership with UW Harborview and Coordinated Care, these sessions will offer opportunities to learn directly from expert doctors and connect with caregivers sharing your experiences. The meetings will start with a 45-minute presentation by Harborview doctors and conclude with 45 minutes of Q&A around services of CaRES, Coordinated Care and Harborview. The medical topics were selected based on common areas foster parents would like more support around, and training credit will be available. 

On alternating months, sessions will be a chance to simply share perspectives and resources around navigating health systems as a caregiver.  

We’ll meet in the same Zoom room every month: 979 4221 7041. 

Mark your calendars to make sure you take advantage of these very special events!
