Did you know many of the St. Louis Arc’s Family Support workshops are now available through the Arc’s Facebook page?

As many of the Arc’s programs moved to a virtual format during the pandemic, the Family Support team began offering family workshops through Zoom while also streaming them on Facebook Live.

Watch at Your Convenience

A challenge for many families in the past was finding the time to attend a workshop. Not only are virtual workshops easier to attend while juggling work and home life, but we are now archiving these sessions on Facebook for anyone to enjoy at a later date. Additionally the Family Support team holds Q&A sessions every Tuesday afternoon to provide an opportunity for families and individuals to engage with the Arc around a variety of topics.

The Arc is staying true to its mission of providing high-quality services, family support, and advocacy. Workshops, support groups, and Meetups are all being offered virtually. The team is continuing to adapt to the needs of Arc families and offering familiar and new supports each week. A full, up-to-date calendar of activates can be found on the Arc’s website.
