GROUPS FOR FAMILIES

Skipping Stone offers a slate of 6 different groups.
Throughout them, you’ll see a theme emerges that is at the core of our vision: HEARTS.
We strive to show that as individuals, an organization, and as a community, how much we truly care through the authentic kindness and generosity in our words and our actions.

All our group programming is specific tailored to carefully align with the vision and mission of the organization, as well as the needs identified by our clients and community, and are professionally supervised and evaluated to ensure a consistent and high standard.

Groups may include discussions, film screenings, educational components, creative outlets, guest speakers, and a host of other activities designed specifically for the target population.

Below are the groups specifically designs for parents, caregivers, spouses, partners and other family members and support people.
