Invisible Pain Day
Every year on January 7th, we come together to observe “Invisible Pain Day.” This day holds special significance as we remember those, we’ve lost due to the struggles with mental health. Our primary focus is to provide solace and support to the families left behind, offering them a compassionate space to share their stories and find comfort in the company of others who understand their pain.
Back to School Wellness
Every August, we proudly host “Back to School Wellness Day,” a heartfelt commitment to the well-being and success of our youth and families. This extraordinary day serves as a vital community resource hub, generously supported by the community, offering free school supplies, backpacks, as well as various coping programs like yoga, journaling, and art therapy. These resources equip our young learners with essential coping skills and mindfulness techniques and emphasize the importance of nurturing their mental and emotional well-being as they embark on their educational journey.
