Social Emotional Supports Provided by the Village for Families and Children

On November 16, 2023, our Welcome Center's  Homeless Coordinator & Family Service Specialist, Leslie Carrillo presented A Virtual Family Learning Session about Social Emotional Services Provided by the Village.  She was joined by two Women’s Recovery Navigators for the Village for Families and Children, Natalie Bacon and Crystele Cataldi, who help women with support in their journeys without substance, and who know that everyone has a story, and all stories are worthy of being told and heard.
