Virtual Program Opportunities

We may be practicing social distancing for the time being, but that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to connect with each other and hang out! We are excited to offer virtual programs for LIFE participants. Learn more by visitingwww.lifemowercounty.org/coronavirus. Video programs are conducted over Zoom, a free app that can be downloaded on your phone, tablet or computer.

We are still adapting and changing programs based on participant and family needs, and we would love to hear your thoughts and ideas! Send your feedback to info@lifemowercounty.org and let us know how we can better support you while we are all staying safe at home.
