Child Parent Institute is inviting parents who have lost their homes to the North Bay fires to participate in parenting groups that teach about the progression of post-disaster recovery. By gathering in a forum with others who have endured a similar experience, participants have been receiving support, empathy, and resources, and gaining strength, hope, and concrete strategies. Parents are able to safely process their own experiences and share insights about guiding their children. As parents become more resilient, they are better able to foster resilience in their children.
Parenting groups will take place on:
Monday Mornings from 9-10:30AM at Child Parent Institute, 3642 Standish Ave., Santa Rosa, CA, Rm. 120 on April 9, April 23, May 4, and May 18.
Wednesday Evening from 6:30-8:30pm on April 25 (same location as mentioned above)
Resilience Walk - Monday, April 30, 10:00am-11:30am
Additionally, people who were impacted by the N. Bay Fires are invited
on an invigorating walk around Spring Lake. The goal of
this event is simply to get some exercise and meet others
who have experienced fire-related loss.
Free of charge. Meet in front of the East West Cafe, 558 Summerfield Rd, Santa Rosa, CA between 9:50am and 10:00am. The walk will begin promptly at 10:00am.
