Greetings Healing Center Families,
School has started and I still can’t believe how quickly the summer came and went.
As we look forward to the Fall, we’ve made some changes to our After-School Children’s Programs at The Healing Center. The following provides you with dates and times for our new groups:

(Note that for Healing Club 1-2-3; Healing Club 4-5; Gigi’s; and SOS, there is a concurrent parent meeting downstairs. We invite you to participate as you feel inclined.)
Teen Group (for Grades 9-12) – Every other Monday, beginning October 3, 5- 7:00 PM
Our Teen Group (for Grades 9-12) will begin Monday, October 3 (5:00 – 7:00 PM) and will meet every two weeks for the remainder of the school year.
The Healing Center has a recommended per-group donation of $20 per child. Pizza will also be served for all of our children’s groups throughout the year and we ask that caregivers contribute $20 one time to cover the cost of pizza for the year. (As a non-profit organization, we can take donations in the following forms: cash, check, credit card, or volunteer hours. Please feel free to send me your questions or concerns.)
Please refer to our website calendar (https://www.healingcenterseattle.org/calendar/) for further information. For specific inquiries, please do not hesitate to contact me. Either email or phone . . . whichever is more convenient for you.
Thanks so much! Looking forward to seeing all of you in October!
