MEETINGS

 

Each month we meet the second Thursday, at 3434 Roswell Road, in the Buckhead area of NE Atlanta, in the Peachtree Presbyterian Church, Room 3305, from 7:00-8:30 pm. Our meetings begin with a Social/Snack/Sharing time followed by a presentation and Question/Answer time. During the years, we have covered a very wide range of topics and concerns. Every meeting is informational, interesting and focused on specific requested topics. Always, at least one person gets the exact information needed.

We encourage and support each other in our various journeys toward our unique goals. Usually we have a speaker or facilitator to discuss relevant topics which help us to refine our residual deficits. As we fine-tune our skills, we progress toward a healthier self-image, and “fit” more comfortably into an “un-injured” world socially, financially and emotionally.
