Virtual Groups and Classes

Virtual Groups and Classes

To support the community while everyone is staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic, JFS is offering several virtual groups and classes. We will continue to update this page as more are added.

Virtual Adult Wellness Group

We’re More Than This Moment in Time
This 3-session group is for adults dealing with anxiety and/or depression related to the current health crisis. All sessions meet online Tuesday from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. 

May 19: Utilizing Mindfulness and other coping skills to grieve the ‘normal’ we lost
May 26: Accept the uncertainty of our current reality as part of our ‘story'
June 2: Look forward towards living with our most cherished values in mind



Art can be a powerful tool in helping children and adults reduce their stress, improve their ability to cope, and increase connectedness.

We invite all school-aged children and their families to join us for a Draw-Along, led by JFS therapist, Matthew Newbury. If parents need a break, children are more than welcomed to participate without a parent present.

Tuesday, May 26

Supplies needed: Paper + crayons, pencils, pens, and/or markers
