Peer Support Services

Peer Support Services would like to introduce you to our new monthly Lunch and Learn event!

The monthly Lunch and Learn sessions will be held online via Zoom on the last Monday of each month, starting January 25, 2021. Come share virtual space with fellow foster parents, right from the comfort of your own home!

Each month’s Lunch and Learn will feature a topical discussion, facilitated by FFFNS, and will also offer space for foster parents to hear and be heard. Guest speakers will be invited to share with foster parents from time to time.

WHAT: Monthly Virtual Lunch and Learn

WHEN: Last Monday of each month

WHERE: Wherever you are, via Zoom (you do not need to have a Zoom account to participate)

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Email each month for the joining instructions.
