A Message From Your Co-Chair, Jacinta Moss

January 1, 2021

 

Hello RCCMHC Families!  I want to welcome new families and say hello to our old families. I can’t wait to see you all again. I miss your beautiful families and running around the Boys and Girls Club with your kids. I hope during this time you are still trying to stay connected with RCCMHC so that we can all support each other and so that you can get the help that your families need. Words can’t even say how much I miss you all. I hope to see more of you on Tuesday nights on Zoom for Family Game Night and education/training events.  I hope most parents and kids are getting some self-care and family time and space from each other. I miss you all and can not wait to be seeing y'all beautiful and handsome faces!

 

Much Love to You All!
