Hello RCCMHC Families! I want to welcome new familes 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 from 6:30- 7:30 on zoom for Family Game Night and some 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!

Hey RCCMHC families, it's been a while! My family really misses your families, hanging out and talking. Our world changed this year in a dramatic way, and every day seems like a struggle. RCCMHC is here to be that light at the end of the tunnel, to be HOPE. Things will get back to normal, and until they do, we're all here, working, advocating for families and children with disabilities. We are learning to connect over zoom and email, and doing our best to stay connected. When we all come back together, what a celebration that will be! Until then, lets keep zooming and interacting. We can get through this together. I love you all.
