After enduring one of the most historic years, we prioritized mental wellness and coming together as a community this summer.  Titled CommUNITY: Stronger Together, we discussed our personal journeys with mental health and supportive coping skills, competed in physical and mental games (called Challenge Days!), and learned to support each other as a community.  While there were many hardships for us to overcome, we wanted to share with you a list of the many things we are grateful for!

Thank you to everyone for joining us this summer!  As we sunset our 2021 Summer Program, we are thankful for the opportunities these past several weeks have provided and look forward to our bright future together as a community.
