Did you know that the Vincentian Learning and Engagement Institute is now offering community support groups?

These groups are designed to offer comfort and encouragement to those facing the challenges of caring for loved ones, navigating the path of dementia, or experiencing loss of a spouse. Support groups occur monthly and allow participants to share experiences, resources, and feelings and connect with others who understand. 

Registration is not necessary, and all who are touched by these issues are welcomed to attend at any level of participation.  For questions, please contact VLEI at vlei@vcs.org or 412-720-0202.
