Catholic Charities Community Outreach Services kincare groups Relatives as Parents Program (R.A.P.P.) and Grandmothers as Mothers Again (G.A.M.A.) continue to meet virtually each week via Zoom. Our group members began the session with a laugh as they discussed their most embarrassing moments. Later, they were treated to a presentation from Fidelis Care representatives, Patricia Mahecha, Fred Tantao and Gelin D, who spoke about the various services and resources available. To conclude the meeting, Janessa Rose from Motivational Monsters spoke about the importance of self-care, positivity and more!
