Community Wellness Circles
Community Wellness Circles help bolster Black families — particularly those led by single women — in two ways: by focusing on improving the relationship Black youth have with their parents or guardians, and by providing a safe space where adults who want to parent more effectively can de-stress, share challenges and work on healing themselves. The program is supported by a grant from King County’s Positive Family Connections.
How it works
Being a single parent or guardian is incredibly difficult work, yet there are few available outlets where parents can learn how to move beyond stress and disappointment and embrace hope, support and the promise of a better future. Our weekly Wellness Healing Circles provide that healing space.
We focus on teaching the building blocks that make up a healthy quality life, emphasizing parenting, conflict-resolution and empowerment skills. Our facilitators also connect vulnerable adults to vital community resources to alleviate food and housing insecurities, schedule health care or provide computers or other tech assistance.
Sharing hopes and dreams
As with our other programs, participants can join a Community Wellness Circle online. These small gatherings offer consistency and a safe place for mothers and guardians to share hopes and dreams, offer emotional support and work through solutions.These sole-gender, caring, small group spaces are led by a trained facilitator, usually a Black woman who is a parent herself.
